Our Community Partners & Organizations We Are Proud to Support

“New

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.  

“Parsons

In partnership with Parsons New School of Design, we have established The Shade Store Diversity in Design Scholarship Fund to support undergraduate or graduate students studying interior design at Parsons School of Design during the 2020 – 2021 academic year. The scholarship focuses on students of traditionally underrepresented or underserved groups.

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®.

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.

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.


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.

The Bail Project

We are proud to donate to the Bail Project, an unprecedented effort to combat mass incarceration at the front end of the system. The organization pays bail for people in need, reuniting families and restoring the presumption of innocence.

Know Your Rights Camp

We are proud to donate to Know Your Rights Camp, whose mission is to advance the liberation and well-being of Black and Brown communities through education, self-empowerment, mass-mobilization and the creation of new systems that elevate the next generation of change leaders.

The Loveland Foundation

We are proud to donate to the Loveland Foundation. Through fellowships, residency programs, listening tours, and more, it brings opportunity and healing to communities of color, and especially to Black women and girls.
