WELCOME TO THE ACADEMY OF ARCHITECTURE FOR HEALTH FOUNDATION
Since its inception in 2001, the AAH Foundation has grown tremendously. We have sponsored 25 research grants/fellowships totaling approximately $312,000. The purpose of those grants is to provide real ‘knowledge’ to assist and inform people like you – who care about quality Architectural Health Care Research and how it does make a difference.
The essence of the AAH Foundation activities has been to sponsor quality HC Architectural research for the design profession to use as they craft together their clients’ facilities. Having accurate/credible information provides the profession the opportunity to create healthcare environments that truly provide healing spaces.
Since 2010, there has been continued growth in expanding the mission and the impact of the AAH Foundation for the HealthCare design profession. The Board is dedicated to promote initiatives that create quality Architectural HealthCare research that provide the opportunity to provide truly healing spaces.
Increase in avg. grant value from $7,200 to $19,000
Committed value of $600,000 to increase to $1,000,000 in 2019
4 Fellowships to be awarded in 2018 – total value $23,000

You can read more about the Research, Legacy Initiative and Fellowships on our website: AAHFoundation.org
We hope, as you look ahead into next year, that you will consider continuing your support to the 2018 AAH Foundation via either the SLS 2018 AAHF Networking Reception or the Legacy Initiative. Without your continued support, the AAH Foundation would not be in a position to carry on with our mission of quality Architectural Health Care Research.
This research is shared with the entire profession and HC community – at no cost.
To borrow from JFK – ‘A rising tide lifts all boats…’
Thank you again for your consideration in supporting the AAH Foundation.
