The AVIXA Foundation provides access to quality skills education, builds career pathways, and encourages valuable hands-on experiences to inspire the next generation of leaders in the audiovisual (AV) industry.

We see a future where:

  • AV is recognized globally as a viable career path for professionals
  • Ample supply of entry-level skilled workers for AV companies around the world
  • Enhanced diversity (in all forms) within the industry on a global scale


The AVIXA Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization operated for the public good on behalf of AVIXA™. With the help of AVIXA members and the entire audiovisual industry, the Foundation maintains a rigorous agenda of charitable functions and programs. 

We thank the many generous supporters of our work. Without them, we couldn’t advance the industry and pave the way for its thriving future.
