Seal of Transparency

Each year AIGA strives to enhance the design profession by establishing programs and initiatives that reach above and beyond the scope of simply supporting current members. Your contribution to AIGA will benefit AIGA programs and initiatives such as Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships, nurturing the next generation of design leaders; diversity initiatives, to make the profession more inclusive and diverse; The Legacy Fund to secure the future of AIGA; and the AIGA Design Archives, preserving the legacy of great work accomplished by our gifted colleagues.

There are three ways to contribute to AIGA: 

  1. Join, renew, or upgrade your membership at the AIGA Trustee or Design Leader level to be recognized on
  2. Establish an AIGA group membership for your firm at the Patron level to demonstrate your support and receive special recognition
  3. Make a tax-deductible contribution to support Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships or the AIGA Legacy Fund

Whichever method you choose, you’ll be recognized for giving back to the broader design community!

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. Learn more about the AIGA Diversity & Inclusion Initiative.
