College of Architecture, Planning and Design


Thank you for your interest in giving to the College of Architecture, Planning & Design (APDesign).

The design, planning and allied professions play a significant role in a robust economy. Now, more than ever, design matters. The same could be said for philanthropy and the impact it has on the students, faculty, staff and facilities of APDesign. This past fiscal year, APDesign alumni and friends contributed over $2 million in philanthropic support through outright gifts, pledges or future commitments. Donors created or established nine new scholarships, three student enhancement funds, one endowed professorship and one faculty enhancement fund. Plus, the Founders Guild added three new members to this extensive list of alumni, friends and firms who support the construction of a 21st century learning environment for APDesign.

On our Donor Stories page you can read about the impact our alumni and friends have had on APDesign and how they hope to inspire others to give back. Thank you to all who have chosen to make a gift to APDesign. Now, more than ever, your support is critical to the college as we strive to maintain a nationally ranked design school and embark on a renovation and expansion of our Seaton home, knowing that philanthropy will enable us to achieve these goals.

Please contact me if you would like more information about making a gift or if you would like to include APDesign in your estate plans.

Best regards,

Damon Fairchild
