Board Emeritus Matching Gifts: Give Today and "Multiply Your Effectiveness"

As one of its first initiatives, the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) convened a small group of leading landscape architects at Independence Hall in Philadelphia on June 1 and 2, 1966. Their Declaration of Concern urged a new collaborative effort to improve the environment and train a new generation.

On the anniversary of this seminal event, we invite you to invest in the work of LAF to continue this legacy to “multiply the effectiveness of the limited number of landscape architects.” Members of the LAF Board Emeritus have pledged to match contributions made to the LAF Annual Fund now through June 15 (up to $10,000), so your gift will have double the impact.

LAF is still devoted to the four-point program proposed by these thought leaders nearly 50 years ago: (1) recruitment, (2) education, (3) research, and (4) a nationwide system for communicating the results of research, example and good practice.

In the words of Ian L. McHarg, Campbell Miller, Grady Clay, Charles R. Hammond, George E. Patton, and John O. Simonds…

“We pledge our services. We seek help from those who share our concern.”

Give today and multiply your impact.
