Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS
The Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) is the oldest and one of the largest funders of HIV/AIDS service and education programs in the U.S. Since its founding in 1984, DIFFA has mobilized the immense resources of the design communities to provide over $38 million to hundreds of AIDS organizations nationwide Starting with volunteers from fashion, interior design, furnishings and architecture, supporters of DIFFA now come from every field associated with fine design. DIFFA has also been an innovative agent in drawing local and national corporations into the fight against the epidemic, and enjoys tremendous support from the business community. DIFFA grants funds to organizations that fight AIDS by providing:
Preventive education programs targeted to populations at risk of infection
Treatment and direct-care services for people living with AIDS
Public policy initiatives which add resources to private sector efforts
