Puerto Rico

ACSA Puerto Rico Schools Fundraiser


Overview

We have been in contact directly or indirectly with the four accredited architecture programs in Puerto Rico. They have sustained differing levels of damage, and it is uncertain still when they will open and how they will decide to start, continue, or address the academic work started this semester. 

We know that, given the shortage of electricity and other needs, the recovery will take time, and students and faculty are looking for temporary options to continue their work.  Please join ACSA in raising the necessary funds to get the much-needed supplies and assistance to these schools. Your generous donations are tax deductible and greatly appreciated.

Goals
ACSA seeks to raise $10,000 in support, for the four ACSA member schools in Puerto Rico. The funds raised will be split evenly to schools and will assist in the purchasing of necessary supplies needed for rebuilding and reopening the schools.
