About the Designers & Builders Alliance Members

Designers + Builders Alliance of Long Island, A Foundation Built on Giving, is a unique organization uniting all home-trade professionals under one roof – for networking and industry-focused activities.

The mission is three fold: to foster the concept of good design on Long Island, produce programs that enhance relationships among the myriad of home trades and most importantly, to raise money for worthy, local causes.

The D+BAofLI is a registered 501(c)(3) charity.
