The Design Professionals of Canada Foundation will help designers, educators, students and researchers.
The 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. Our goal is to become a registered charity, to fulfill our mandate and expand our work.
We are focusing our fundraising campaign on building our Operations Fund in order to fulfill our mandate to become a registered charity. There are significant costs involved and we hope to reach our goal of $10,000 to cover all legal, accounting and filing costs.
