We have a big idea! But we can’t do it alone.

Help IFDA help heroes at home by becoming a Take A Seat patron. We have opportunities at local and national levels.

For more than 65 years, IFDA has been one of the leading associations of the furnishings and design industry offering professional education, peer networking, and special public events.  Throughout its history, IFDA’s members have created ways to serve their communities where they saw unanswered needs. Service is a big part of IFDA.

In 2014, the six chapters participating in IFDA Take a Seat™ have created an initiative called Helping Heroes at Home.  They have pledged 70% of the net proceeds from these events to a variety of local charities.  Some of these include Habitat for Humanity, The Wheelchair Foundation, Military Assistance Mission, and Project Home.  Through the generosity of event Patrons, IFDA chapters will be able to contribute to important local causes.

Last year’s inaugural event raised more than $16,000 which was contributed to relief efforts to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy and the Japan Tsunami.

Please join us in being part of this important initiative.  For all of us in this industry, home is our business.  Let’s work together to help those who need a home.
