Many AIA Connecticut 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 the missions of the Connecticut Architecture Foundation and AIA Connecticut.

The Connecticut Architecture Foundation was originally established and developed through legacy gifts from the Charles DuBose and Suzanne Sheng families. Money from these funds other contributions have supported dozens of students pursuing scholarships. Additionally, grants have been given to support programs for primary and secondary students as well as grants for research 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 or more become named funds, to be used per the request of the donor within the limits of the CAF Mission and giving practice.

The benefits of giving are numerous. You retain control of your assets during your lifetime. You may redirect
or modify your gift if circumstances change. Your gift may provide tax savings for your heirs. You may leave a gift in memory of someone who inspired your love of architecture, promoting the importance of
architecture for years to come.
