Letter from MAF President Tim Casai
Architecture, and You, Inspire and Unite Us


As 2021 unfolds with the possibility of light at the end of the COVID tunnel, the Michigan Architectural Foundation is cautiously and safely inviting our friends and donors to join us at our 2021 MAF Golf Outing, Fore a Great Cause, on May 24 at Plum Hollow Country Club in Southfield.  While this and many other events were cancelled or postponed during the past year, we are optimistic that the coming months will be the beginning of a return to in-person activities and events.

Despite the difficulties and heartbreak of the past year, we are so grateful to those who continued to support the MAF and our programs throughout words, actions, and donations.  Your support of our efforts to engage children, students, and the public in how architecture enhances life is a tribute to those who did so despite the darkness of the pandemic.  We cannot thank you enough.

Going forward, we hope to engage you further and begin to offer even more opportunities to demonstrate our commitment to great architecture in Michigan and beyond. Please continue to review our newsletters, visit our website, and connect with MAF on our social media platforms to find how we are pushing to reach our goals of education, opportunities, and engagement related to Michigan architecture.  As always, we welcome your input and invite  you to reach out to MAF regarding how architecture has enhanced your life!
