DIFFA'S DINING BY DESIGN SPONSORSHIP INFORMATION
DIFFA/Chicago (The Design Industries Foundation Fighting
AIDS) is a not-for-profit fundraising and grant making foundation that
distributes funds to Chicago area HIV/AIDS service agencies that provide direct
service, preventative education and outreach to people who are HIV positive,
living with AIDS or at risk for infection. Founded in 1984, DIFFA has granted
more than $38 million to hundreds of community-based organizations.
Founded by volunteers from the fashion industry, 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. In Chicago, our Excellence in
Care Awards funding focuses on those agencies that demonstrate extraordinary
effectiveness in achieving their chosen missions in the HIV/AIDS arena.
