An enthusiastic THANK YOU to all of you who contributed to and helped to promote the IxDA 10th Anniversary pledge drive. Together, we raised $23,600 to support IxDA's current and future initiatives.
IxDA has grown dramatically since our last pledge drive in 2009: our discussion list has exploded by 500% (from 10,000 to 50,000+ members); and the number of local groups has nearly doubled. Today we have 145 groups operating in 40 countries.
Today is the final day of the The Power of 10 pledge drive. With more than 125 individual supporters, we've raised $16,690 together. Amazing! Thank you to everyone who has contributed – your belief in the IxDA community makes us stronger.
A few of you have taken the time to share reasons why you've donated. Here is what you've had to say:
This is the final week of our Power of 10 pledge drive. At 5pm EST Monday, we'd raised $4580 towards our $25,000 goal. Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far – 45 of you have generously helped us on the way to our target.
100% of the pledges so far have been unrestricted donations. That
means IxDA will be able to channel your support towards the initiatives
and improvements to our tools that matter most in advancing our mission – especially technology platforms like ixda.org.
Since 2003, IxDA member support has been at the core of our exponential
growth and development as a global organization. From the very first
email discussion list to formalizing the organization's mission,
operations, and governance, to local groups around the world, to
programs and platforms where our community can meet and share ideas to
advance the discipline of interaction design...YOU are the members who
come together as a vibrant community in support of our goals.
