There is no doubt that steadfast commitment to one's career, community, or a worthwhile cause tends to pay benefits to everyone impacted by that devotion. This is perhaps no more evident than in the case of architect Les Tincknell, FAIA
Many of us would like to honor colleagues, friends or family as a way of cementing forever their values, relationships or contributions to architecture. There are a few options and the requirements are simple.
You may start a named scholarship with a pledge to endow it over ten years. The MAF policy is that a maximum of 4% of an endowed fund may be distributed in a given calendar year. Today, the minimum pledge is $50,000, providing a $2,000 year scholarship. A Designated Fund Agreement is required.
You may designate a specific program or purpose for an endowed fund. The minimum pledge amount is $50,000, to be achieved within ten years of the start of the fund. A Designated Fund Agreement is required.
You may designate the MAF in your will or provide a bequest. Upon receipt of the bequest or will proceeds, a fund will be established if you so designate, or it will be applied toward an MAF program of your choosing.
If you are interested in starting a fund, you may contact an Officer of the Michigan Architectural Foundation to discuss your goals and details of the endowment, and to develop a Designated Fund Agreement.
