The AIA Ohio Foundation works to promote architectural education and public awareness of architecture in Ohio.  Funds are utilized to support educational materials, programs and scholarships for the students and schools of architecture throughout the state.  

In recognition of former AIA Ohio member, the late Charles J. Marr, FAIA’s early efforts and significant generosity in establishing the AIA Ohio Foundation, the Charles J. Marr Award was established to recognize individuals whose commitment to the profession is exemplary.  Any person is recognized as a “Charles J. Marr Sustaining Member” who makes, or in whose honor is made, an initial contribution to the Foundation of $100 or more, with the stated intention of becoming a Charles J. Marr Award recipient within 10 years by donating the balance of the total $1,000 contribution.

All contributions to the AIA Ohio Foundation are used to provide scholarships to the four schools of architecture in Ohio. The AIA Ohio Foundation is recognized as a 501 (c)3 organization by the IRS, and contributions are tax deductible.

Each year, contributions to the AIA Ohio Foundation help provide scholarships to each of the four schools of Architecture in Ohio.  Last year, over $12,000 was distributed to worthy students who will define the future of the profession!
