Please Donate to the RAIC Foundation

I support the RAIC Foundation because I believe in architecture and I believe in the profession. I believe in the valuable contributions that we architects make in Canada and beyond. It's a no brainer - the RAIC Foundation is the most clear and immediate way to support this conviction.

Ralph Wiesbrock, FRAIC, Partner/Principal at KWC Architects Inc.

Although fundamental to the environments in which we live, work and play, architecture and urban design are often unrecognized as essential influences on daily activity. The RAIC Foundation plays an important role in promoting public awareness of the importance of architecture … I believe that those of us who have enjoyed the privilege of serving the public through our profession also have an undeniable responsibility to lend our support to this important initiative.

John Davidson, FRAIC, Principal, Davidson Yuen Simpson Architects

The RAIC Foundation advances excellence and knowledge in Canadian architecture by supporting programs, projects, awards and scholarships that:

  • nurture and support the next generation of Canadian architects
  • educate the public about how architecture improves lives and transforms communities
  • raise the profile of Canadian architecture at home and internationally

The Foundation's fundraising priorities for the upcoming years are:

  • to continue to grow the RAIC International Prize endowment fund;
  • to increase the annual contribution to the Foundation 50 Scholarship for aboriginal students;
  • to increase our financial capacity for the RAIC Foundation Bursary.

Please donate to the RAIC Foundation so we can continue to support these and similar initiatives, and create new scholarships, awards and bursaries that help us build a stronger Canada where everyone values architecture's essential role in creating healthy and happy people and communities.
