Other Endowed Funds

Establish a fund

As opposed to annual gifts, which cover yearly operating expenses, endowed funds provide long-term income for The Architectural League. Endowed funds can be established for a specified purpose, or as unrestricted funds to meet the greatest needs of the League. If you are interested in establishing an endowed fund, please contact the League’s Development and Membership Manager, Daniel Cioffi, at cioffi@archleague.org.

The Architectural League and the Metropolitan Museum of Art share income from the J. Clawson Mills Charitable Trust. Income supports the League’s J. Clawson Mills Fellowship and honoraria for participants in League programs.
