The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) announced a donation of $375,000 to DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS, creating the new Design Impacts Life Fund. The Fund will offer grants to nonprofits that provide services, education and treatment to those affected by HIV/AIDS, with the potential to expand its reach to support others in need. This donation represents one of the largest single gifts ever to DIFFA.

The gift comes from the ASID Benevolent Fund, which was started in 1974 by ASID members to provide funds to those in need in the design community during the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. ASID paused fundraising for the Benevolent Fund when DIFFA was launched as a larger design industry focused organization. This donation closes the chapter on the ASID Benevolent Fund and opens opportunity for DIFFA to increase its organizational impact and reach. The ASID Design Impacts Life Fund will be leveraged to create the greatest possible impact on those living with HIV/AIDS and the DIFFA organization. Thanks to the national reach of both ASID and DIFFA, potential grantees may apply from all aver the country.

In addition to its grant support, the Design Impacts Life Fund will leverage the combined power of ASID and DIFFA to spur the industry to action. Through their various programs and partners the two organizations will continue to broaden the scope of the fund to inspire support from the design world and maximize its effect on all communities in need.

Both ASID and DIFFA have a rich history of helping others. ASID provides monetary support through the ASID Foundation, which advances the profession and communicates the ability of interior design to enhance the human experience through research, scholarships and education. In addition to its fundraising and volunteer events, DIFFA has granted more than $4 million to support nonprofit organizations across the country supporting HIV/AIDS.

The Design Impacts Life Fund was officially announced at the annual NYCxDesign Awards on May 20, 2019 at New York’s Pier 17. Both the Society and DIFFA will continue promotion of the fund through their various annual programs.

BLANCO, the German manufacturer of finely crafted sinks and faucets, joins DIFFA for a sixth year as a Specify with Care® partner. Each time BLANCO’S new QUATRUS® R15 ERGON is specified, BLANCO will make a donation to DIFFA.

“We are honored to support DIFFA’s vital mission to battle AIDS,” states Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. “DIFFA has emerged from a grassroots design community organization into one of the largest funders of HIV/AIDS service and education in the U.S. and we are proud to continue our support as a Specify with Care partner.”

The QUATRUS R15 ERGON Apron Super Single sink refreshes the classic farm sink with a modernized look and functionality that meets the everyday needs of the most practical, yet beautiful kitchens. With a generous R15 radius, rear-positioned drain hole and a high ledge for custom accessories, the QUATRUS R15 ERGON offers users maximum workspace in, under and on top of the sink. Optional accessories include a grid, steel colander and wood cutting board – the QUATRUS R15 ERGON elevates a kitchen’s workspace and limits countertop clutter.
