Introducing the CAPLA Student Tech and Materials Initiative: An Urgent Need for Students


At CAPLA, our students are facing a critical moment—returning for the Fall 2020 semester without access to the technology they need to succeed. We are asking for your support to help them bridge the gap by donating to the CAPLA Student Tech and Materials Initiative today.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many students to work remotely. For those without the required technology, who otherwise thrive in their study of the built environment, this is an impossible situation.

By supporting this fund, you will enable CAPLA to loan the necessary laptop computers and related technology for students to succeed in their required studio and other courses.

Can we count on you?


Historically, students without their own computers have utilized the CAPLA computer lab, the UA Libraries computer loan program, maybe a roommate’s computer or even a shared family computer. In the new, remote learning environment brought on by the pandemic that necessitates reduced access to materials and computer labs, it is critical that our students have access to their own single-use laptop capable of running our advanced software.

Your support will ensure that our students continue to succeed—now and far into the future.

To give by check, make it payable to UA Foundation with CAPLA Tech Initiative Crowdfunding in the memo line and mail it to: 

The University of Arizona Foundation, P.O. Box 210109 , Tucson, AZ, 85721-0109

Thank you, stay safe and Bear Down.
