Located at the Center for Architecture, a public gallery space committed to advancing an understanding of the field, the Center for Architecture Foundation is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting a broader appreciation of the built environment through educational programs and scholarship.

Our programs aim to:

 - Cultivate visual literacy and an understanding of the design process;
 - Inspire students, teachers, and schools to be civic activists, creative thinkers, problem solvers and team builders;
 - Build partnerships between schools, students, families, design professionals and the Center for Architecture;
 - Introduce students to careers in architecture, landscape architecture,design, historic preservation, urban planning, engineering, interior design and construction.

Our programs engage young people, families, teachers, and community members in contemporary topics in the built environment. They provide visual tools that inspire participants to think critically about the physical world around them. We rely on corporate and individual donations to support our mission. Please consider getting involved as a sponsor, make a donation, volunteer your time, or donate materials and supplies.
