This year we will be taking part in the digital campaign known as #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, we will join other charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world to come together for one shared purpose—to celebrate generosity by supporting causes close to their hearts. We invite you to donate to our initiative, a merit-based scholarship program that supports local design-minded students by offering them financial assistance to pursue their design education.
“I look at what people have to pay for [tuition] today and I just go, ‘How do they do this?!’” – AIGA DC Fellow Pat Taylor
” I feel comfortable donating to the AIGA DC Design Continuum Fund because I know it is going to good people and in a good direction.” – Designer Cecilia Cortes Earle
Join donors like Pat and Cecilia who are empathetic to the financial stress that students face today. Help us reach our $100,000 goal so that will have more to invest in our soon to be launched Endowment Fund which will help sustain this program.
You can also help by spreading the word about this day or Why You Give via social media using the following hashtags!

Please note that a donation to the AIGA DC Design Continuum Fund is fully tax-deductible, so consider donating before the end of the year.
