Limited Time Campaign for A/V Equipment

AV_CampaignPlease help the Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara raise money for new state-of-the-art Audio/Visual Equipment for the Acheson House!

We have a limited time to receive matching funds BUT we need your help to reach our goal of $2500 by October 31st 2015.

The Lucifer Lighting Company will generously match any funds we raise towards the cost of a new ceiling mounted projector and associated A/V equipment.

The Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara, based in the historic Acheson House, is also home to AIA Santa Barbara, and the Junior League of Santa Barbara. Many popular programs and events that promote, support and educate the community about architecture, art, and design are held in the Gallery Conference Room. Recent offerings include sold-out lectures on Cuban Architecture, Solar Energy, and Museum Architecture, as well as Art Gallery openings and Films. The current Gallery Conference Room has no dedicated projector to fulfill these program needs.

Please make a tax deductible contribution to help us qualify for the matching funds! This is a limited-time offer that we can’t afford to miss.

Please email or call us with your donation today–cash, checks and credit cards are all welcome.
Thank you so much for your support!
