Annual Appeal

2020 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 seven this year to students at Carnegie Mellon, Clemson, Cornell, Princeton, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and University of Hartford.
