CTE Support Fund



CTE Support Fund Committee Starts Summer off Right

It’s an exciting time to be an ACTE member, because all of our hard work is paying off – our leaders on Capitol Hill and across the country are standing up for the CTE community, and our schools are better preparing students for success as citizens and professionals in the 21st century.

As the school year winds down, the CTE Support Fund Committee is kicking into high gear and has set the course for us to move forward. The Committee’s work showcases the kind of commitment to CTE we can all strive for, and because of their efforts ACTE has been able to make great strides in furthering public awareness and perception of CTE.

In the spirit of that commitment to the CTE community, I want to ask you to chip in $5 or more to the CTE Support Fund today so we can end this school year on a high note. To donate, you can use ACTE’s secure online donation system here

Thank you for all that you do – together, we can help CTE reach new heights.

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.
