WHO WE SUPPORT
DIFFA/DALLAS IS PROUD TO GRANT FUNDS TO several AMAZING AIDS SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS IN THE DFW AREA.
Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA/Dallas) raises funds for organizations that aid in the fight against HIV/AIDS by providing preventative education programs, treatment and direct care services for people living with/impacted by HIV/AIDS.
One of the largest and most successful fundraising organizations aiding HIV/AIDS, DIFFA is a non-profit service provider with chapters in Dallas, New York City, Chicago, Kansas City, San Francisco and Seattle.
The Dallas chapter, formed in 1984, is the only HIV/AIDS organization in Texas that provides funding to local HIV/AIDS Service Organizations within our community. DIFFA/Dallas has granted more than $8 million to over 25 front line HIV/AIDS Service Organizations in North Texas providing direct care to those living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.
Highlighting the design community, DIFFA/Dallas hosts multiple events throughout the season including Burgers + Burgundy, Holiday Wreath Collection and House of DIFFA. Through your support and generosity, we are able to make a significant impact in our community.
GRANT APPLICATION SEASON BEGINS IN SPRING 2019.

For over 25 years, Legacy has been providing quality mental healthcare, substance abuse treatment, and special care housing services for people challenged with HIV and AIDS.
If you’ve been recently diagnosed with HIV or even if you’re a longtime survivor but you need some emotional support, our Counseling Center has a number of therapeutic programs to suit your individual needs from one-on-one personal counseling to interactive group sessions.
Resource Center is a trusted leader that empowers the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) communities and all people affected by HIV through improving health and wellness, strengthening families and communities and providing transformative education and advocacy.
Bryan’s House is a place of compassion and hope, where children with special needs and children impacted by HIV/AIDS can just be kids. We provide an environment where children can be free of the burdens of their illnesses or disabilities, and where they can instead focus on the important things in life… like learning to read a book, painting a picture, riding a bicycle, or simply having fun!.
The donations given to DIFFA/Dallas help grant funds to local HIV/AIDS Service Organizations throughout North Texas directly impacting the community. DIFFA/Dallas provides opportunities for sponsorships, underwriting, auction and In-Kind donations.
With both silent & live auction packages available, this is an excellent opportunity to align your company brand with DIFFA/Dallas to show your support. For designers, DIFFA/Dallas has opportunities to create or donate custom jackets to be featured on the runway during House of DIFFA.
Another excellent opportunity to support DIFFA/Dallas is by donating goods and services. These donations are extremely beneficial by allowing us to allocate more funds to those who need it the most.
