The Cosanti Foundation appreciates and values all of its donors – both large and small – and the sponsors, alumni, visitors, and many others who continue to demonstrate their support of our mission, their belief in our vision, and their ongoing interest in the work of The Foundation.

Since its inception in 1965, The Cosanti Foundation has been committed to influencing the way the built world is created in balance with the environment. Your donations mean so much to us and help to sustain The Urban Laboratory.

When you donate to The Cosanti Foundation, you are demonstrating your belief in an organization that for over 55 years has been championing the creation of a built world to be a habitat for humankind without harming the Earth’s environment and exploiting its resources. Scholars, architects, students, and others come to Arcosanti and study its ambitious premise and the impact its founding principle of arcology has had on the planet.
