Help designers in Canada – Get Behind Design!

Your donation will grow the GDC Foundation fund

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 over $40,000 toward this goal!

We ask you to join in building a legacy for design in Canada by making a donation to the GDC Foundation during the 2014 annual “Get Behind Design” campaign. And as a special thank you for donating, all donors are entered into a prize draw at the end of the year.

We have two premium one-year subscriptions to to give away! ($375 value!). View all the prizes at

The Foundation has already started to help students through special scholarships and will eventually be able to help designers in crisis. It will also give grants for special projects, exhibits, that expands the knowledge base for design in Canada and preserves design history.

Your donation will make a difference!
