Working together with members like you, the Wisconsin Architects Foundation has been successful in building a better Wisconsin and serving as a catalyst to improve our environment through architectural education and research.
As WAF President, I am pleased to report that in the most recently completed fiscal year the WAF strengthened its commitment to valuable scholarship and educational outreach programs. I hope you take a moment to review the 2012-2013 Highlights listed in the Annual Report.
Looking ahead, the WAF Board has plans for a heightened level of scholarship support for Wisconsin architecture students and to provide grants for student chapters at colleges across the state, elementary teacher training for "Terrace Town" on the principles of sustainable community design, and minority high school students to attend the UWM SARUP Architecture Summer Camp. In addition, the WAF remains committed to supporting continuing education programs for emerging professionals and efforts to enhance the public's awareness of architecture.
The success of these valuable WAF programs depends on your continued financial support. In fact, your support is more important than ever before in order to meet the challenges of ever-rising college tuition and to encourage the best and the brightest to pursue careers in architecture.
On behalf of the WAF Board, please consider making a contribution this year and encouraging fellow design and construction industry leaders to support the WAF.
