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.

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!



To create a diverse community of makers and thinkers, scholarships are key. You can impact the life of a student with a gift of any amount.

The Dean's Fund

Unrestricted annual fund gifts to the Sam Fox School provide resources that can be directed to the area of greatest need, when they are needed most. Whether for scholarships, faculty research, classroom equipment, or other areas—your gift will be put to work.

Academic Programs

Art or architecture, undergraduate or graduate—you can designate your gift to the area or program that is most meaningful to you.

Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum

One of the oldest teaching museums in the country, the Kemper Art Museum is uniquely positioned within the Sam Fox School as a resource for all Washington University students and faculty, as well as the broader St. Louis community. With innovative virtual programming, the museum’s impressive collection is available to you, regardless of where you live.

Alumni Involvement

Beyond financial contributions, we encourage our graduates to give back and stay connected—with us, and with each other—in various ways. Alumni relationships are vital to the Sam Fox School community, providing meaningful connections for current students and young alumni.
