CTE Support Fund




Dear ACTE members,

You’ve just finished navigating Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But did you know that today is Giving Tuesday? This day, at the beginning of the holiday season, offers the chance to give to inspire action on local, national, and global issues.

At ACTE, we are grateful for our members who share our goal of promoting CTE that develops a skilled and competitive workforce. We value your input on our advocacy efforts, and we are inspired by the methods that you use in your classrooms to teach students the crucial skills that will equip them to succeed in our modern economy.

Our CTE Support Fund gives us the resources to augment our work of promoting  CTE by implementing public awareness campaigns, creating policy briefs and other materials, and strengthening our national coalition of professionals. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the fund here

You may also enjoy our CTE Support Fund mug, available here.

The Career and Technical Education Support Fund promotes the advancement of CTE through a broad array of activities, including developing research-based materials focusing on the value of CTE; building and sustaining a national coalition of CTE leaders, administrators, organizations and businesses that support CTE awareness; and organizing public awareness campaigns to support CTE. These efforts are critical to supporting and advancing the cause of CTE and donations to this purpose are tax-deductible. Your contributions to the CTE Support Fund enable ACTE to carry out vital work on your behalf.

The CTE Support Fund enables ACTE to conduct new and exciting outreach activities that advance the CTE community as a whole. Recent examples of these activities include:

  • Conducting a media briefing to educate reporters on the importance of Perkins funding
  • Developing a new Sector Sheet on careers in Information Technology

ACTE is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions are deductible as charitable contributions for federal income-tax purposes.

You can also download a .pdf version of the donation form and brochure to share with colleagues, and fax or mail to ACTE. You can use the form for fundraising efforts at state, regional and affiliate meeting as well! Contact Sean Lynch to learn more.

Data Quality Initiatives

With a growing national focus on data and accountability to help students succeed in education and careers, collecting high-quality data and sharing it across different agencies is more important than ever. For CTE, data quality and access issues include appropriately measuring student achievement, including the attainment of high-quality credentials; ensuring the quality of Perkins-funded CTE programs; and providing data to consumers on the connection between education and labor market outcomes.
