AIA Pittsburgh’s Foundation for Architecture provides leadership development for architects and emerging architectural professionals.

In 2016, in recognition of its mission, the Foundation awarded a stipend to one emerging professional to attend the 2016 AIA Convention in Philadelphia. (Read the winning essay and more.)

Now in its fourth year, the Leadership Institute for Emerging Professionals aims to fill a void in architectural education by teaching leadership skills. As the signature program of the Foundation for Architecture, the Leadership Institute has already benefitted 40+ emerging professionals from member firms across the city, and will continue to define the next generation of leadership in the region.

The Foundation plans to maintain these offerings – and explore others – this year and beyond, expanding the AIA’s reach and influence. It is through the generosity of our members, partners, and community that we are able to provide such programs and opportunities. We are fortunate to have a dedicated and strong community of design professionals and partners that generously encourage our young leaders.  A donation to the Foundation is an investment in the future of the profession in the Pittsburgh region.

AIA Pittsburgh’s Foundation for Architecture is a 501(c)3, a charitable organization. Donations to the Foundation are tax deductible.
