A Word from our Fiscal Sponsor

Our team is gearing up for an exciting week of innovative and thoughtful programming!

PEAC Institute has our back,

and it feels great.

"When I was first approached about getting involved with Montclair Design Week, I was uncertain I had much to offer aside from my general interest. I thought, 'I'm not a designer!' I was happy to realize I was wrong. Upon meeting Petia and the incredibly diverse team she put together, I was sure we would collaborate.


I connect deeply with MDW's mission. I love the idea of a design force for good, and how much this concept resonates with young people. This initiative fits perfectly with PEAC's mission. As a 501(c)(3) public charity, PEAC offers young people exciting ways to find and express themselves through in-depth encounters in completely new environments. Through workshops conducted with partners around the world, PEAC broadens minds, opens hearts, builds self-esteem, and nurtures healthy relationships for a peaceful healthy planet. 


It is an honor to work with and support MDW as their fiscal sponsor. Together we can accomplish so much more than apart, and I am so grateful I get to work with such a wonderful and inspiring organization!"
