4x40 Campaign to Build Funds for Interior Research and Design Scholarships
WASHINGTON, D.C. (November 19, 2012) | The American Society of Interior Design (ASID) Foundation’s 4x40 campaign is in the final stretch to build the Foundation’s endowment to $4 million by the Society’s 40th anniversary in 2015.
Founded in 1975, the ASID Foundation advances the interior design profession by drawing upon its resources to promote meaningful collaboration and research, award scholarships and fund projects that broaden the value of interior design.
In 2013, the Foundation plans to award $48,000 in scholarships for both ASID members and nonmembers to support interior design research, education and scholarships. In addition to scholarships, the Foundation has focused on expanding its research agenda, including a newly published whitepaper on evidence-based design for residential environments.
“The work of the Foundation helps advance the profession while providing the industry with significant research and resources,” said Donna Vining, FASID, IIDA, RID, CAPS REGREEN trained. “During the next two years of our fundraising campaign, we are optimistic that with the support of the industry, we can continue to build our capacity to support the next generation of interior designers.”
