Give to Oregon students this #GivingTuesday!
Every year, AFO supports students and teachers participating in Architects in Schools through the AiS Student Supply Fund. The Supply Fund puts money directly into teacher’s hands so they can purchase the art supplies and materials needed to provide free design education to their students.
By giving to the AiS Student Supply Fund, you are ensuring no students are left without access to the tools they need to express themselves creatively through AFO design programming.
Make a donation, today! Link in bio.

The Design Advocacy Outreach Group (DAO-G) meets quarterly with the mission of increasing student access to architecture, engineering, construction, and design (AECD) fields in the state of Oregon. As a group of local partners who are aligned around this shared mission, DAO-G meetings are a time for us to harness this network to share opportunities for students, volunteer needs, resources, outreach efforts, and more.

Giving our 2023 Honored Citizen stage design by @mayerreed the moment it deserves!

Did you know? Every year AFO leans on designers in our community to help us create a unique Honored Citizen experience. The team at Mayer/Reed did not disappoint! Thank you to our 2023 stage and table design crew for the time and design expertise dedicated to this event. The warm and electrifying theme of the design stood flawlessly as a backdrop for celebrating the legacy of our 2023 Honored Citizen, Hermann Colas, Jr.
