You can help save this National Historic Landmark
Reuse of the Richardson has been a labor of love for our community for the past ten plus years and we can't thank Buffalo enough for its support. Now, we ask you to help us keep the property full of life for generations to come. We hope you’ll join us in making the future of Richardson even brighter.

The reuse of the Richardson Olmsted Campus is part of Buffalo’s resurgence as a premier destination for art and culture and a mecca for architecture enthusiasts from around the nation.
In 2017, after a massive $102.5 million effort, we completed the successful rehabilitation of the first three buildings; however it represents only one-third of the plan for the 500,000 square feet and 42 acres of the Richardson Olmsted Campus. We are currently planning for the future of this National Historic Landmark and the Lipsey Buffalo Architecture Center.
Now, we're very close to our goal, thanks to the generosity of Stanford and Judith Lipsey! The Lipseys have committed a $2.5 million challenge to encourage $5 million in additional giving.
Your support is crucial to meet this challenge. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to leave your mark on one of the world’s most celebrated architectural masterpieces—and help keep the property full of life for generations to come.
Together, we saved this famous landmark from abandonment; together, we created a reuse plan; together, we celebrated the opening of the Olmstedian South Lawn landscape; and together, we will renew this masterpiece of American architecture.
