Legacy Giving

What will be your legacy?

Many members have made contributions to the Connecticut Architecture Foundation. Members may also leave a gift to the Foundation to nurture and support future generations of architects. Making a gift through your estate is a simple way to support our common mission.

The Connecticut Architecture Foundation was originally established and developed through legacy gifts from the Charles DuBose and Suzanne Sheng families. Funds from these and other contributions have supported dozens of students by providing architectural scholarships to advance their education. Other funds have supported mentoring programs for elementary and secondary students, research grants and publications.

Gifting can be as simple as providing a bequest in your will or naming the Foundation as a beneficiary on a life insurance policy. All gifts are welcome. Smaller donations are folded in the Foundation general fund. Gifts of $25,000.00 or more become named funds. These funds are focused on the professional interests and purposes for which the gift was given.

The benefits of giving are numerous. You retain control of your assets during your lifetime. You may redirect or modify your gift if circumstance change. Your gift may provide tax savings for your heirs. You may leave a gift in honor or memory of someone who inspired your love of architecture. Making such a gift ensures that your professional values can continue for years to come.
