Seal of TransparencyAfter a century of service, AIGA is continuing to evolve as the leading professional organization for designers. We strive to enhance the design profession by establishing programs and initiatives that nurture the next generation of design leaders, enhance professional development and leadership opportunities for designers, preserve the legacy of great design, and advocate for diversity, inclusion, and gender equality within the industry.

Make a contribution today and help us continue this work!

AIGA has a large selection of programs, initiatives, and resources. Here are the following programmatic areas that are open to donations. Designate one for your generous gift today:

AIGA Legacy Fund

Contributions from the profession and the public enable AIGA to celebrate the legacy of American design and to demonstrate the value of design. Membership fees allow AIGA to continue to serve designers today; additional funding is needed for special projects. These funds have been used in three ways: preservation of AIGA's archival material, documentation of American design history, and design education in schools. Learn more about the AIGA archives and special collections.


Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships allow young people from minority and economically disadvantaged backgrounds to realize their artistic dreams and give back to their communities. The scholarship program benefits individual students while helping to offer opportunities in design to a diverse younger generation who can contribute to increasing the demographic relevance of the profession.
