The IDC Foundation is a New York City-based charitable institution exempt from tax under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Its mission is as follows:
The IDC Foundation promotes innovation in architecture, engineering, and building construction with an emphasis on interaction among those fields to address pressing societal needs.
Founded in 2015, the IDC Foundation is the legacy of the Institute of Design and Construction, which provided educational programs in fields relating to architectural design and building construction until 2015 in Brooklyn, NY. The IDC Foundation’s funding was made possible by a grant from the Institute to carry on its educational mission to provide training in those fields and create new avenues for learning that improve and add to understanding of practices in them.
