Bridge the Gap

Wigington Campaign


Help bridge the gap that keeps promising students from pursuing professional architectural degrees and becoming architects. With your financial contribution, you can help create a stronger, more representative architecture community that can shape a better and more equitable built environment.

About the Foundation

The Minnesota Architectural Foundation (MAF) originated in 1970 as MSA Foundation for Environmental Research, with a purpose of studying potential computer applications in architecture. In 1979, following receipt of a bequest from William Berget, the name was changed to MSAIA Architectural Foundation, incorporated for charitable, scientific and educational purposes.
