Investing in the Architecture Profession

The purpose of the Minnesota Architectural Foundation (MAF) is to invest in excellence, leadership, discovery and equity in the profession of architecture. Through a variety of sources MAF funds outstanding programs such as the Thomas F. Ellerbe Scholarship, the Ralph Rapson Traveling Study Fellowship, the Clarence Wigington Architectural Scholarship, the Beverly Hauschild-Baron Leadership Fund and the Women in Architecture Fund.

Your financial support allows the MAF to continue to fund these outstanding programs. Help us support current and future practitioners in the advancement of the profession and make Minnesota architecture the best in the country. Please contribute online or reach out to MAF for alternative ways to donate. Thank you for your support!
