Join us in supporting
Oregon’s quality of life


AFO has grown into a thriving and dynamic nonprofit organization since 1981, when five firms provided $5,000 each to fund an endowment leading to incorporation as a not-for-profit Oregon corporation in 1983. AIA Portland, additional architecture firms and individuals contributed operating funds.

With partnerships across the state of Oregon, AFO is committed to supporting Oregon’s quality of life through education, engagement and inspiration.
