The DMAW Educational Foundation, Inc. (“DMAW/EF”), is a separate corporation from the Direct Marketing Association of Washington (“DMAW”).  The foundation has its own separate Board of Directors and a different tax-exempt status.  Where the DMAW is a trade association that serves the interests of its members, the DMAW/EF serves the public interest by disseminating information about our industry to professors and undergraduates with an interest in the direct marketing profession.  We aim to improve the profession through public education.  Our Bylaws determine the way the foundation conducts all of its non-profit business operations, and they are presented here in the interests of transparency in governance.
