Foundation | Give to the ASID Foundation

Support the future of interior design and make a lasting impact by giving to the ASID Foundation.

Individual Giving

When making a contribution, your donation will be directed to the General Foundation Fund unless you designate the name of a legacy fund, program, or fundraising challenge in the dropdown menu.

Currently active programs include:

  • ASID Foundation General Fund
  • Advocate by Design (AxD) Fund (*this is not tax deductible)
  • ASID Chapter Challenge
  • Gary Wheeler NCIDQ Fund
  • Giving Tuesday
  • Marty Rayle Fund

Currently with our system, donations made online with a credit card will require you to sign up for an ASID account unless you already have one. If you do not have an account you can create one without becoming a paying ASID member. When making a donation online by credit card, you will automatically receive a donation receipt by email.


Donations by check can be sent to the following address. Please make checks payable to “ASID Foundation” and on the top of the check make a note if there is a named fund to which you wish to direct this. Donation receipts will be mailed after donations are processed. Mail your check to:

ASID Foundation

Legacy Giving

Planned Giving

The ASID Foundation has established The Legacy Society to provide a number of Planned Giving methods. Be sure to include the ASID Foundation in your estate/financial planning. Some of the benefits of proper planning are:

  • Bypassing capital gains tax on appreciated property
  • Increasing your current income
  • Reducing current income taxes
  • Receiving a charitable income tax deduction
  • Reducing federal estate taxes
  • Conserving future assets for your loved ones

To learn more about planned giving and to speak to an ASID Staff Member for further information, please contact or call (202) 675-4443.

*The ASID Foundation is unable to accept gifts of equipment, gems, artwork, or real estate.

Tributes & Memorials

Tribute gifts, given in the name of a loved one, are unique expressions of thoughtfulness. At the ASID Foundation, there are two types of tribute gifts:

Honor gifts

Honor gifts recognize a person on a special occasion, such as a birthday, wedding, or anniversary.

Memorial gifts

If you would like your loved one, or their family, to receive a special acknowledgment that recognizes the honoree and the donation, please contact one of our Trustees or e-mail us at
