The IAF Foundation works relentlessly to raise the profile and understanding of architecture with the public. Good design and excellent architecture add so much to our state. We invite you to support the Foundation in a generous way so that we can fully fund IAF’s excellent programming.

After more than a year of reduced revenue-producing activities, we are trying to do things a little differently now regarding our fundraising, and provide professional firms and companies with sponsorship opportunities that will span a full year from the time they sign on. Please follow this link for the complete brochure with details.

The opportunities for recognition for this year and next are:

  • ArchiTreasures – a series of short format videos, funded by BRAVO, of interior architecture to which the public rarely has access
  • Adventures in Architecture – a summer day camp for middle schoolers, in partnership with Des Moines Public Schools
  • Architecture on the Move – a monthly series of walking tours of Downtown Des Moines
  • Community Enhancement Through Architecture and Design Awards – a program recognizing individuals and organizations outside the architectural profession, for architectural stewardship
  • ABC Drawing and Snapshot Iowa – state-wide student contests
