Help Make A Difference!

This past year, California had its most destructive and deadly wildfire season on record. Through GoFundMe, DesignCon is raising money for the California Fire Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization providing emotional and financial assistance to families of fallen fire fighters, firefighters and the communities they protect.

DesignCon appreciates your help and will match up to $3,000 in donations made by January 31, 2019, through this campaign. It’s a cause close to many members of the DesignCon community, with some of our long-time attendees and exhibitors personally impacted by the 2018 wildfires.
