North Carolina Architectural Foundation

The North Carolina Architectural Foundation promotes and sponsors architectural programs and education. The mission of NCAF is to actively encourage and support quality in the field of architecture and to educate the public about architecture.

The Foundation awards the Kamphoefner Prize of $10,000 to an architect in North Carolina who exhibits excellence in the Modern Movement of architecture. The Prize is funded through an endowment bequeathed by Henry and Mabel Kamphoefner.

The Foundation's mission has evolved to adapt to various needs. NCAF now supports both the N.C. State School of Design and UNC-Charlotte College of Architecture through the presentation of scholarships and book awards to worthy students.
