Thank you for your interest in donating to the Washington Architectural Foundation. The Foundation works to give the diverse DC community access to all the opportunities design offers. We do that through education courses for children and adults, including:
Online learning resources - In response to the global COVID-19 crisis and related DC Public Schools closure, we've worked to develop lessons, activities, and structured live programs to provide a multitude of options for at-home learning and encouraging positive engagement between kids, families, and their home environment.
Architecture in the Schools, where architect volunteers work with local elementary schools accross all wards of the city and Northern Virginia for a curriculum enrichment program that complements any subject matter from math and science to literature.
Programs at the District Architecture Center that teach middle and high school students skills in drawing, digital design, site design, sustainability, and more.
Architecture Month each April ignites a celebration of architecture in the nation’s capital with programs, lectures, and tours at the District Architecture Center and around town.
In addition, the Foundation has a scholarship program that supports students from the District throughout their university-level architecture education. Each year, we host the region's CANstruction - a popular annual event that invites teams from local architecture, building, and engineering firms to build with food cans - tens of thousands of which are later donated Capital Area Food Ban.
Your support makes the difference! Please make a donation today and support our work throughout the city.
