Top prize winners earn paid summer internships at firms in Chicago, or a prestigious apprenticeship at Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright's School of Architecture in Spring Green, Wisconsin. CAF is one of the only organizations in the country to collaborate with Taliesin for teen programs. Read more about the Newhouse Competition here.

Legacy Gifts – Leave a Legacy, Build a Foundation

A gift to CAF through your will, trust, retirement assets or life insurance creates a legacy for you and your family. These gifts provide lasting resources for CAF, ensuring that we will be able to inspire future generations to discover why design matters. Legacy gifts are placed into board designated funds, managed by the CAF Board of Trustees, and are used to enhance CAF’s financial strength and provide for continued growth of CAF’s programs, tours, operations and exhibits.

Whatever your stage in life or financial circumstances, you can make a gift to CAF that benefits your loved ones, addresses your financial goals and shares your values with future generations while supporting the mission and programs of CAF. If you are interested in making CAF a part of your legacy, please contact Michelle DeMent, planned and major gifts officer, at mdement@architecture.org or 312-561-2115.
