RAIC Foundation Donors

The awards and scholarships offered by the RAIC Foundation are in part supported by monthly and one-time donations from architects, architectural firms, industry partners and members of the public

Donations made through our charity partner, Canada Helps, can be directed to specific programs:

  • College of Fellows Centennial Fund, for Interns and Intern Architects wishing to promote the value and image of the profession
  • RAIC Foundation Bursary for a project relating to architecture in its broadest sense, whether undertaken by individuals or groups whether architects or non-architects

Donations not specifically directed to one of these funds will go into a general fund that supports:

  • Insdspire ‘Building Better Futures’ – scholarships to support Indigenous students studying architecture
  • Canadian Academy of Architecture for Justice (CAAJ) bi-annual student competition
  • RAIC International Prize Student Scholarships for essays on architecture
  • Other activities, presentations and events beyond the scope of our current portfolio

To donate, please click the Donate tab on the upper right of the page.



The RAIC Foundation wishes to thank those individuals and firms who responded generously to our recent outreach with donations in support of our various awards, scholarships and bursaries. Prominent among our new monthly donors is Keystone Architecture, whose head office is in Abbotsford BC.

Founded more than 30 years ago, keystone is experiencing a period of rapid growth, opening a new office in Calgary and expanding its staff from a core of 12 to more than 40. This has been achieved without the firm losing its core values of integrity and character. Over the years, the initial success with the development of churches, worship facilities and recreational camps, expanded into a portfolio of unique ventures including multi-residential communities, retirement communities and industrial projects.

As Senior Principal Eric Poxleitner of Keystone notes: “As we evolve, we are seeking out and hiring the most talented people in the industry. A lot of them are young graduates, whose fresh ideas, enthusiasm and team approach help us in our search for better ways to serve our clients, add value to projects and reduce the carbon footprint of our buildings. With their passion for sustainability, the younger generation are always pushing us to do better. When the RAICF reached out to us, we immediately saw this as a really good fit with our own values and wanted to be involved.’.

DONOR PROFILE: Southwest Ontario Chapter, RAIC College of Fellows

In June 2022, the Southwest Ontario chapter of the RAIC College of Fellows dedicated its annual fundraiser to the RAIC Foundation. We greatly appreciate this generous donation, which was used to advance our core non-endowed initiatives in the areas of social justice, equity and reconciliation. The Chapter has made a similar commitment in relation to its fundraiser in June 2023. We offer our thanks in advance, and look forward to continuing this mutually beneficial relationship.
