The GDC is asking you to get behind design and support the GDC Foundation.
The Foundation will:
Fund special projects
Offer benevolent support & scholarships
Support research, conferences, exhibits
Encourage the future of the profession
Make the world a better place.
Get behind it!
The purpose of the Foundation is to help the GDC better attain its goals for developing and serving the profession, improving the human environment and offering charitable support.
Since the creation of the Foundation in 2006, the GDC has been striving to increase student scholarships and support professional development programs such as conferences, exhibits and awards. The GDC also hopes to be able to provide support for special events such as Design Cares, Design Week as well as design research and other projects which help improve the human environment. The Foundation will help keep membership dues low by offsetting costs for special events and programs.
The Foundation is raising its initial capital through donations and bequests from designers, printers, educators, sponsors and others in related fields. When the target goal of $100,000 is reached, we will be able to use the interest for project funding. We need your help.
