Our Community Partners & Organizations We Are Proud to Support


The Shade Store is a proud supporter of the New York School of Interior Design. We contribute to the institution’s scholarship program for future leaders of interior design and underwrite the annual Rising Star Award, which honors an exemplary designer early in his or her career as they hit their stride in the profession.  

Arbor Day Foundation

At The Shade Store, we are making strides to reduce our environmental impact and promote a healthy planet. Since 2008, in partnership with the Arbor Day foundation, we have planted a tree for every order placed to help restore critical watersheds and wildlife habitats destroyed by fire. We call it the Gift of Shade®.

Meals on Main Street

We are a proud community partner of Meals on Main St., a community gathering place in our hometown of Port Chester, NY, that brings together people of all faiths and backgrounds in a safe, welcoming environment and provides them with a hearty meal.

Human Rights Campaign

We are proud to donate to the Human Rights Campaign. The largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer civil rights organization envisions a world where LGBTQ people are ensured of their basic equal rights, and can be open, honest and safe at home, at work and in the community.

Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club

The Shade Store is a proud supporter of the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club in the Bronx, NY. Since 1915, this organization has focused on improving and enhancing the lives of New York City’s children who are economically, socially or recreationally disadvantaged.


The Store Store is proud to be a corporate sponsor of Visible Hands, an organization that provides exceptional founders from underrepresented backgrounds with the funds, hands-on support, and community they need to thrive at the earliest stages of company building. Visible Hands invest in overlooked founders nationally at the pre-seed and seed stages and run programs like accelerators, fellowships, and wellness retreats.

Black Interior Designer Network

We are a proud sponsor of the Black Interior Designers Network, the pioneering nonprofit organization providing resources and business opportunities that allow black designers to flourish.
