About the FoundationUndergraduate ScholarshipsGraduate FellowshipsResearch GrantsDonateFoundation Donors

The AATCC Foundation Inc was founded in May 1997. With its own board of directors, the Foundation operates independently in the furtherance of the charitable mission of AATCC. The members of the board of directors represent a broad cross-section of textile, retail, chemical industry experts, and other senior business leaders with interests in many different aspects of textile design, materials, processing, and testing. The Foundation operates from The AATCC Technical Center located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA. Because the influence and activities of the Association extend far beyond the borders of North America, the Foundation solicits funds worldwide.
