The Design Professionals of Canada Foundation is a growing fund to support design research and education, special projects, scholarships for students, and professional designers.

The Foundation also has a benevolent fund offering short-term financial assistance to designers experiencing a career-challenging difficulty.

It is through the generous support and donations from individuals and the public that make the Foundation possible.

The Foundation was created in 2012 and has since given a significant number of student awards typically in the form of scholarships. The scholarships come from both individual donations and public donations.
