Foundation encourages giving in association’s 100th year
Posted January 13, 2021
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – This month begins a year-long celebration commemorating AATCC’s 100th anniversary.
This year’s significance makes it a rare opportunity to make a special contribution in honor or in memory of someone who influenced your education and career in textiles or helped you financially achieve your textile education.
The first 100 individuals who contribute $100 or more to the AATCC Foundation in 2021 will receive a commemorative pin.
AATCC Foundation Inc. was created as the charitable arm of the association. A large part of AATCC Foundation’s mission is to:
promote and support the science and knowledge of textile design, coloration, materials, processing and testing;
promote continued education and provide educational assistance; and
communicate research findings to the general public.
The foundation accomplishes this mission through its textile undergraduate and graduate scholarships and its student research support grants program. Many of you, who are currently involved in your textile careers, were at one time a recipient of an AATCC Foundation scholarship or grant.
Please contribute and help AATCC Foundation build the future of textiles.
Established in 1997, AATCC Foundation, Inc. operates to further the charitable mission of the association, promoting the science and knowledge of textile design, coloration, materials, processing and testing through research and education. AATCC Foundation, Inc. seeks ways to develop and promote quality standards throughout the world.
