On December 14, 2018, 250 architects, designers, and supporters of the BSA Foundation gathered for its annual Breakfast Fundraiser.

This invitation only event is the Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser. This year’s event featured remarks from the Honorable Joseph Curtatone, Mayor of Somerville; Linda Soto, Boston Public School senior, aspiring engineer, and HMFH summer intern; John Feuerbach, Senior Development Officer for Housing at the City of Boston; and BSA Foundation Board and Committee members Jess Garnitz AIA and Laura Wernick FAIA. The event showcased a video of the Foundation’s recent work and accomplishments, which you can view below.

This year’s Breakfast raised $656,000 for the Foundation, surpassing the goal of $650,000! The BSA Foundation Board and Staff are humbled by the many supporters who gave so generously at this year’s event. We are particularly grateful to our renewing Legacy Circle Members, a number of whom increased their support to the $25,000 and $50,000 levels starting in 2019. We also wish to extend a special thank you to new Legacy Circle Members. The far-sighted generosity of Legacy Circle Members is the backbone of the BSA Foundation’s operating support. Please see the full list of Legacy Circle Members here.

Funds generated at the Breakfast support the Foundation’s public programs and its vision to establish Boston as a model of a resilient, equitable, and architecturally vibrant city and region by 2030, achievable via three goals:

  • Ensuring access to design education for every child in Greater Boston.
  • Providing access to design resources for every neighborhood in Greater Boston.
  • Using design to engage and empower the public to address regional challenges.

In the coming year, the Foundation will focus on building capacity to deliver on these goals by developing new strategies and adding new team members.

Thank you for all of your support, and here is to building a better Boston in 2019!
