Founded by Brad Pitt in 2007, Make It Right builds homes, buildings and communities for people in need. All Make It Right projects are Cradle to Cradle inspired – meeting the highest standards of green building.

Through innovative partnerships and community-led design sessions, we are working in neighborhoods across the country and educating others to change the way buildings are designed and built.

Make It Right believes:

  • Everyone has the right to live in a high-quality, healthy home that enhances the natural environment.
  • Communities should be fully engaged in defining their own needs and have a leading role in designing appropriate ways to meet those needs.
  • Design has the power to improve the quality of affordable housing and enhance occupants’ living conditions; it also plays a key role in creating vibrant, sustainable communities.
  • Innovation results in affordable building designs, methods and materials that drive new industry standards for green buildings.

Our Mission:

To build safe, Cradle to Cradle inspired homes, buildings and communities for people in need.


Our Vision:

Around the world, people are living in healthy communities and affordable, high-quality, environmentally sustainable homes.
