Ways to Give

“We decided to give to LAF and invest in the future of the profession through the Olmsted Scholars Program, which recognizes and awards over $80,000 annually to exceptional student leaders. These young and talented designers inspire us with their accomplishments and unlimited potential.”

     — Thomas & Gerry Donnelly
