Lucinda Yates, the founder and CEO of the company, used her creativity and drive to launch a successful line of fashion jewelry back in 1989. Given her natural instinct to be a successful entrepreneur coupled with her desire to help others, it is no surprise that she founded a company built on helping non-profits. Located in South Portland, Maine, all pins are hand assembled by Lucinda’s team of artists who work to create one pin at a time, ensuring that no two are alike. These wearable-art pins are sold to non-profit organizations for the purpose of bringing financial help and awareness to many causes worldwide. Since its inception, Designs By Lucinda has helped over 8,000 organizations raise $25 million.
For the past 10 years the Fresh Start program in the Center for Women and Men has partnered with Designs by Lucinda for a unique fundraising opportunity. Popular designs sold by the Center are the butterfly pins, women pins, and angel pins. To date, over $5,000 has been raised.
