AIGA San Francisco

the professional association for design



Without the support of our sponsors, AIGA SF would not be able to present the number of events and programs to the Bay Area design community. AIGA SF is a 501-c-3 non-profit organization, which makes sponsorship commitments tax deductible. Our federal tax ID is 94-2998197. If you have any questions or are interested in sponsorship opportunities, we are happy to create a package just for you.

Our Sponsorship Chair fosters a relationship of mutual benefit between between AIGA San Francisco and representatives from allied fields who serve the design community. This usually occurs in the form of cash or in-kind sponsorship for chapter events. The Sponsorship Chair works closely with the Programming Chairs and the Executive Director to identify potential sponsors for chapter events and activities.
