ASID Foundation Continues to Grow
ANGELO DONGHIA FOUNDATION SUPPORTS RESEARCH GRANTS AND MORE/ IN 2003, THE ASID Foundation received a tremen-
dous gift in support of its mission, from a generous ﬁve-year, $1 million grant from the Angelo Donghia Foundation. The purpose of the grant is to provide assistance for the advancement of education in the ﬁeld of interior design. The full grant was received in 2009, and since then the ASID Foundation has used the grant’s interest to fund new initiatives, all working to fulﬁll its stated mission. Most recently, funding provided by the Angelo Donghia Foundation has allowed the ASID Foundation to launch its first Interior Design Research Grant Program, which, in its inaugural year, will award up to three grants of up to $35,000 each. The program was developed to help reduce gaps in research and expand the baseline of knowledge about how interior design impacts behavior.
The grants will be used toward research and projects in 2011 and 2012. In addition to its gift to the ASID Foundation, the Angelo Donghia Foundation has also made signiﬁcant donations to the Angelo Donghia Materials Library and Study Center at the Parsons School of Design, the Angelo Donghia Studio for Interior Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design, a number of AIDS organizations for continuing research on treatment methods and a cure for the disease, as well as annual scholarships awarded to talented interior design students throughout the United States. Angelo Donghia was an internationally-recognized interior design icon and source of inspiration to the design world, and founder of Donghia Inc.
