Gifts of Cash

Tribute Gifts
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 and Memorial gifts.

An honor gift recognizes a person on a special occasion, such as a birthday, wedding or anniversary.

A memorial gift offers a meaningful way to pay lasting tribute to the memory of a loved one while also extending sympathy to the family.

If you would like your loved one, or their family, to receive a special acknowledgment that recognizes the honoree and the donation, please notify us with the appropriate contact information. The amount of your gift remains confidential.

Matching Gifts
Please remember to ask your employer if they will match your charitable gift.

“I included the ASID Foundation as a beneficiary in my estate plan because I wanted to give back to the organization that supported me throughout my career. I am confidant that interior designers will continue to benefit from the work of the ASID Foundation, and I am pleased to contribute so that future goals can be met.” -Robert Wright, FASID
