Make an impact with the Architects Foundation

Support our scholars and museum programs


We believe architects use the power of design to make a positive impact by solving problems, transforming lives and creating a better world. We also believe the architectural profession needs to respectfully and inclusively reflect the diverse society it serves.

That’s why our programs are designed to harness the irrepressible spirit of architects to support and empower a next-generation design community to create places that make us all better people.

Many donors support the Architects Foundation’s work with an unrestricted gift. These funds enable us to address the needs of our Diversity Advancement Scholars as they pursue their architectural education. This support also enables us to innovate and grow current and emerging initiatives as well as maintain the historic Octagon.

If you are enthusiastic about learning more, establishing a new program, or discussing a planned gift, contact us at 202-626-7472 or

The Architects Foundation is a registered 501c(3) charitable organization, EIN #59-3819154.
