After a century of service, AIGA is continuing to evolve as the leading professional organization for designers.

  • Scholarship Donations: Our goal is to raise $50,000 by December 31, 2019 for the 25-year anniversary of the AIGA Worldstudio Scholarship. The scholarships program aims to increase diversity in the creative professions. Your contribution has an immediate and lasting impact; it provides an opportunity for young people from minority and economically disadvantaged backgrounds to achieve their educational goals and give back to their community through their work. Named scholarships can be made in your name or your company’s name when you donate in the amount of $3,250 or more.
  • General Donations: Your contribution will support meaningful programs and initiatives that nurture the next generation of design leaders, enhance professional development and leadership opportunities for designers, and advocate for diversity within the industry. Donations are unrestricted to support AIGA and advance its mission.

We are thrilled to have your support!
