Funding Initiatives

There are many worthwhile programs and needs worthy of financial support here at the Academy for Career Exploration.

By way of example, here are a few:

• In September 2010, ACE launched two new career-to-work programs to prepare students for employment opportunities in the health care and hospitality industries. Both programs have received the enthusiastic support of industry partners, who see our program as a win-win for students searching for solid career paths and employers who are in need of qualified workers. Upon graduation, students will receive a diploma and also have the option of earning either a certified nursing assistant credential, or a national certification in hotel and lodging management. The offering of these programs is dependent upon financial contributions from foundations, industry partners and individual donors. In addition to supporting the programs’ operating budgets, your contributions may be employed to purchase instructional equipment, study materials, or to pay for field trips.

• General operating expenses are always a challenge, but even more so in this period of fiscal uncertainty. So, if you prefer, you may designate that your gift may used for “unrestricted” purposes. In so doing, you’ll help to ensure that ACE remains fiscally strong and capable of delivering quality education to the students we serve.

You may make your contribution, by sending your check to Academy for Career Exploration, 1 155 5 Harrison Street, Providence, RI 155 Harrison St, Providence, RI 02907 or on-line by clicking on the donate button below.
