Support AIGA Arizona
As a non-profit organization, AIGA Arizona relies on the support of community partners to help enact its four-fold mission. We actively seek sponsors who believe in the value of design in business and want to help build a cohesive creative community within our state. The benefits are not only artistic — numerous studies have shown that regions with vibrant creative cultures become hubs for business growth and investment.
Opportunities for both monetary and in-kind sponsorship* include:
Phoenix Design Week
Get the most bang for your buck by participating in our premier annual event, Phoenix Design Week. Each year, over 500 individuals gather for two days in downtown Phoenix to celebrate and share their skills, while hundreds more attend design-centric events throughout Arizona during the week, with another 5,000+ who stay up to date on PHXDW through social media and email. Between the two-day Method + Madness Conference and a host of local events taking place throughout the week, companies have plenty of opportunities to put their brand in front of an excited, targeted audience.

AIGA Arizona Scholarship Fund
AIGA Arizona’s Education and Mentorship Committee plans to create an endowment fund that will provide a yearly scholarship for design student(s) in Arizona. To learn more, contact Sheila Schumacher.
Design for Good Initiative
Design for Good is a national AIGA program that encourages designers who play a catalytic role in communities through projects that create positive social impact. On the local level, our chapter supports CreateAthon Arizona, a fun-filled 24-hour design marathon that helps underfunded local nonprofits in need of a marketing boost. By combining our creative skills, we can help make a powerful impact in the communities where we work and live. To learn more, contact Anika Bausom.
General Operations Fund
Even though AIGA AZ is an all-volunteer organization, we do have certain ongoing costs that are only partially funded by membership dues. Standard business expenses such as printing, software, venue fees and program expenses add up. Designate all or part of your monetary or in-kind donation to the general fund and we will put it to good use.
Have another sponsorship idea that fits your business?
AIGA Arizona hosts over 25 events annually attended by thousands of Arizona designers. If you have another idea for supporting AIGA Arizona, there are multiple opportunities to interact with the Arizona design community year-round. Please contact Danielle Knotts or Jim Nissen for more information.
