Lester Dundes Memorial Fund

Furthering the Awareness of the Interior Design Industry

The Lester Dundes Memorial Fund was established in 2004 to honor industry leader and longtime publisher of Interior Design magazine, Lester Dundes. Dundes was a tireless advocate for the design industry, and supporter of interior designers, architects and manufacturers. He established the prestigious and legendary “Hall of Fame” to honor top designers in the industry, and created the highly successful “Corporate Interiors” books.

This Fund serves to further the awareness of interior design and its influence and importance on the quality of life. The Lester Dundes Memorial Fund does not accept unsolicited requests for financial support and will determine and announce program opportunities as they are available.
