CAF Annual Appeal

For over 40 years, the Connecticut Architecture Foundation (CAF) mission has been and continues to encourage public understanding and community involvement in the creation and protection of our built environment.

CAF is Your Foundation!

All the funding from CAF comes from donations and bequests from individuals and firms – your colleagues. With that assistance, the CAF has proudly accomplished the goals of endowing people and programs, primarily the awarding of scholarships to deserving students pursuing an architectural education. More than $500,000 of scholarship funds have been awarded, including eight this year to students at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Clemson, and Yale University.

Grants Awarded in 2019

  • The Architectural Resource Center, Inc. for the Design Connections Partnership in New Haven Schools.
  • The University of Hartford NOMA Student Association to attend the National Organization of Minority Architects Annual Conference
  • The Connecticut Science Center Competition that confers the CAF William Mack Award.
  • The Women in Architecture Leadership Equity Summit

The POWER of Your Support
