Help the Architecture Foundation of Georgia turn small dreams into big realities. The Foundation would like to award $24,000 in scholarships to students at Kennesaw, Georgia Tech and SCAD. A donation of $25, $50 or more goes a long way to helping students.
The Architecture Foundation of Georgia (AFGA) was established in 1971 to support and enhance public understanding of the value of architecture in creating more healthy, sustainable, meaningful, and beautiful buildings and communities. To advance this mission, we invest in the next generation of architects who will create diverse spaces, places, and communities.
Today’s high cost of education poses a significant challenge to students seeking professional degrees in architecture. The average cost of tuition for a bachelor of architecture degree is $19,800 – $26,500 per year; while the average cost for a master’s in architecture is about $30,000 per year. The average debt of an architectural degree is $38,175. In fact, research shows that every $1,000 in increased tuition costs leads to a 5% enrollment drop.
You can help.
The Foundation hopes to continue its legacy of investment in future architecture leaders by raising funds to cover its scholarship programs. Join us by contributing to the 2022 Fundraising Campaign. Our goal for 2024 is to surpass our 2021 achievement of $21,000 in scholarships and 2022 achievement of $22,000 in scholarships to students at SCAD, Kennesaw, and Georgia Tech.
Our success depends on your support. We kick off our 30 End of Year Giving Campaign on GivingTuesday – November 28, 2023. GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday kicks off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on November 28th, and throughout the year. Our goal to raise $24,000 and it is possible with your help.
The end of the year is just around the corner! Give a gift today!
