Two affiliates recently received generous grants.
The Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation awarded the Michigan affiliate $50K. This grant will enable the affiliate to purchase
computers for student use and cover other costs such as transportation,
administration, and meals.
The Greater Philadelphia affiliate has received $20K
from the Philadelphia chapter of Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW)
which also named affiliate executive director Tiffany Millner
as one of 20 women leaders in 2018. This grant is directed toward
support of the affiliate’s two all-girls teams. In 2016 the
affiliate earned a similar award from CREW.
CREW has chapters in many communities and so might be a source of funding for other ACE affiliates.
Kudos for Connecticut
The Hartford Business Journal recently named the Connecticut affiliate as the Nonprofit Organization
of the Year. This award recognized the affiliate for its two
decades of success.
