Did a scholarship help put you on the path to industrial design? Did an educator, professional or a conference make a crucial connection in your career? Have you influenced someone entering the ID field? Then you know how much financial support and educational initiatives can make a difference.
“Being awarded the 2015 Design Foundation Undergraduate Scholarship solidified my decision to go back to school to further my education in design,” says Natalie Quinnies, S/IDSA. “It also validates that industrial design is not only something that I have found myself becoming increasingly passionate about, but a way for me to continually challenge my understanding and outlook of the world around me.”
Since 2001, the Design Foundation has impacted many up and coming designers. And next year, it celebrates 15 years of advancing industrial design education. We want to do more. We need to do more—with your help.
The Design Foundation's Annual Giving Campaign runs now though Dec. 31, 2015. Your year-end tax-deductible donation will support current initiatives and allow us to consider future goals such as offering speaker honorariums to attract more leading names in industrial design and related fields to our events—educating attendees at all experience levels.
No gift is too small; every dollar counts.
