Get Behind Design!

Donate to the GDC Foundation and help make a difference!

We ask you to join in building a legacy for design in Canada by making a donation to the GDC Foundation during our Get Behind Design fundraising drive.

Every donation makes a difference, no matter what size.

About the Foundation
The GDC Foundation is growing a fund to support design research and education, special projects, scholarships for students and professional designers, and a benevolent fund to offer short-term financial assistance to designers experiencing a career-challenging difficulty.

We've raised $60,500 toward this goal through contributions from designers students, sponsors and supporters. The Foundation has already started helping students, awarding $5,000  in supported scholarships since 2012. When the fund is at a sustainable level it will help designers in crisis with a benevolent fund. It will aslo award grants for research and special that will expand the knowledge base for design in Canada and preserve design history.

Donate today or contact us to discuss bequests, named grants, scholarships, and other ways to support this worthwhile initiative.
