Building Support

We don’t exist without help. Although Auburn University covers administration costs for Rural Studio during the 9-month academic year, the Studio relies entirely on gift and grant funds to build projects. Additional costs are associated with keeping the Studio’s doors open 12 months a year. One of the great things about giving to Rural Studio is that 100% of your gift goes to Rural Studio. There are many ways to support the Rural Studio. One of the easiest is to donate directly online.

Rural Studio turns 30 this year! To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we’re creating a new fundraising effort to provide perpetual, concrete support for our students designing and building in our West Alabama community. We can reach this goal with 30 named endowments, each with a pledge of $30,000 over the next five years. That’s just $6,000 a year to build a legacy of supporting students’ work at Rural Studio. Learn more here!
