Mission Statement:
The Connecticut Architecture Foundation will raise public awareness of, and expectations for, architecture and the built environment. It will accomplish these goals through the funding of people and programs in education, scholarship, mentorship or research.

The Connecticut Architecture Foundation is committed to enhancing and promoting the quality of the state’s built environment. The Foundation encourages public understanding and community involvement in the design and building processes which create our physical surroundings. It also supports the profession of architecture and allied arts and services. To accomplish these goals, the Foundation sponsors scholarships, publications, exhibitions and other activities, which contribute to an awareness of our architectural heritage and the direction of our future development.

The Foundation was established in 1978 by the CSA/AIA (now AIA Connecticut) as an independent organization to raise and distribute funds for these purposes. It is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors composed of architects and allied professionals.

The Connecticut Architecture Foundation does not initiate or operate programs. It realizes its goals by financially assisting in those creative endeavors it recognizes as consistent with its objectives. The Foundation is supported by gifts from individuals, corporations, public and private institutions and agencies committed to a physical environment of enduring quality and distinction.
