OUR MISSION Preserve and steward Taliesin, Taliesin West, and the Taliesin Collections. Shape architecture and design at the highest level. Transform people's lives through the living experience of Frank Lloyd Wright's body of work. OUR VISION The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation will be a leading, global, multi-disciplinary center for education, scholarship, debate and research committed to the place of architecture and the arts in enriching the quality and dignity of life. When we come to understand architecture as the essential nature of all harmonious structure we will see that it is the architecture of music that inspired Bach and Beethoven, the architecture of painting that is inspiring Picasso as it inspired Velasquez, that it is the architecture of life itself that is the inspiration of the great poets and philosophers. -- Frank Lloyd Wright
The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, through integrating community volunteers into our everyday functions, supports our educational and preservation programs and expands public awareness of the rich history of Taliesin West and Taliesin.
I have been a tour guide since April 1986. For anyone interested in architecture, the story of Frank Lloyd Wright or in advancing the principles of Organic Architecture, this is a rewarding experience, in any capacity one may choose.

I began volunteering with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation about one year ago. Most of my volunteer time was spent as a Greeter and Membership Sales, but I did serve in several other areas. Meeting new people from all over the world was the highlight of my time as a volunteer. Each day I got to see Taliesin West through the eyes of a new person with a different perspective, it was very interesting and exciting. The more I got to know about the Foundation and the wonderful people that work here, the more I wanted to work here. I am currently an employee, HR Assistant, for the Foundation and am enjoying the chance to share my enthusiasm with other volunteers. Taliesin West has a magnetic quality, you will never want to leave!
