Designing Futures Foundation

The Foundation board is a dedicated group of leaders in the design, architectural, and related industries who volunteer to promote and raise funds for Charter High School for Architecture + Design.  Through the efforts of the Foundation Board, CHAD has been building a stronger financial base and a fully-equipped school building in which to pursue its educational mission.

The Foundation board meets quarterly at CHAD and has two specific initiatives:

  1. CHAD Brand — increase regional knowledge of this marvelous institution; and
  2. Fundraising — the support of long-range funding and student support.
