CTE Support Fund



CTE Support Fund Off to a Great Start

Dear ACTE Members,

We’re heading into the school year with a great start on our goals for the CTE Support Fund – and that’s because of the contributions that all of you have made to your community.

I'm also pleased to announce that we've determined which Region won the bragging rights as the largest contributor to the CTE Support Fund in Fiscal Year '14:

Region I: 9.1 percent of total contributions, fifth place
Region II: 17.4 percent of total contributions, fourth place
Region III: 22.5 percent of total contributions, third place
Region IV: 26.5 percent of total contributions, first place
Region V: 24.5 percent of total contributions, second place

You can check out the full results here. Want to help your community and show a little Region pride in FY '15? Click here to chip in.

I speak for the whole of ACTE’s staff when I thank you for your dedication to this association and the CTE community – as well as the leaders that have stepped up to the plate and made a contribution.

Thank you for all that you do.

Sean Lynch
Media Relations Manager

Donate Now


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.
