Support Sam Fox School

Leading Together: The Campaign for Washington University is a major, multi-year fundraising initiative that seeks to build on the university's strong history and further evolve its global leadership. The campaign will focus on enhancing the University's impact in four key areas: preparing the leaders of tomorrow, advancing human health, inspiring innovation and entrepreneurship, and enhancing the quality of life.

At the Sam Fox School, we are playing an active role in Leading Together with our own $75 million goal to support our top priorities: graduate and undergraduate scholarships; academic, museum, and special programs; endowed professorships and research support; and an innovative new facility for graduate and interdisciplinary study. This effort builds on the greater University campaign themes and acknowledges the importance of securing critical support that will allow us to advance our mission of educating the next generation of artists, designers, and architects.

Where Do You Fit in the Picture?

Our community of architects, artists, and designers—including alumni, parents, and friends around the globe—is what makes the Sam Fox School so dynamic. You are the foundation for our continued success, and your generous support today will make a difference to every one of our students and faculty.

As of May 2018, 2,902 Sam Fox School alumni and 3,062 parents and friends have become a part of our future through their contributions to support art, architecture, and design at Washington University. Make your commitment today to help make possible:

- New scholarships that ensure financial need is never a barrier for a talented student, and increased faculty support that allows us to hire and retain trailblazers in our fields;

- The new Anabeth and John Weil Hall, uniting graduate and undergraduate programs on the Danforth Campus;

- An expansion of the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum to showcase more works from our world-class collection;

- Increased support from the Annual Fund that impacts our most important needs year-round.

Donations and pledges of $5,000 or more to any area of the Sam Fox School made before June 30, 2018, will be recognized on a special donor wall within Weil Hall.

If you have never made a gift before, now is the perfect time. Your participation will affirm that the Sam Fox School is supported by a community that believes art, architecture, and design education is critical to the future of our society. Thank you for your support!
