Wright the Roof Campaign

Wright the Roof

Frank Lloyd Wright was a member, and his design revolutionized church architecture.

The Unitarian Meeting House is only 1 of 17 Wright-designed buildings designated by the American Institute of Architects as a building “which should be preserved in its original configuration as evidence of Wright’s contribution to American culture.” Now, its distinctive copper roof is failing. We’ve raised nearly 65% of our goal, but we need your help to finish restoring this significant building.

Check out WISC-TV’s coverage of our campaign here.

Friends of the Meeting House and the First Unitarian Society of Madison have raised $1.35 million of their $2.1 million dollar goal to restore the Unitarian Meeting House. Click the button below to read more about this project, its cultural significance, and how you can help.
