CTE Support Fund
Calling all Classroom Innovators,
CTE Month is almost here! Every February, ACTE launches CTE Month to raise awareness of
the leading role that career and technical education (CTE) plays in preparing
students for college and career success. We hope that every ACTE member will
join us in celebrating CTE Month this year with our new theme, “Recognizing Classroom
Innovators,” which will guide our conversations about how CTE can keep our
economy strong and our workforce competitive.
This year, ACTE will continue in our efforts to recognize
the innovators in every CTE classroom as we celebrate CTE Month. We plan to
organize and coordinate events and activities all throughout February, from a
Congressional reception to build support on Capitol Hill to a public awareness
event at a local postsecondary CTE institution. However, the thing that truly
can make CTE Month a success is the support of members like you.
There’s a lot that every ACTE member can do to get involved
with CTE Month 2015! Whether it’s by making a tax-deductible contribution that enables ACTE to execute new and exciting public
awareness activities, or by sharing the new line of official CTE Month merchandise with your students and
colleagues during your own CTE Month school visit,
I encourage you to innovate a new way to celebrate CTE Month this February!

The Career and Technical Education Support Fund promotes the advancement of CTE by allowing us to engage in a broad array of activities, including developing policy briefs and other materials focusing on the value of CTE; building and sustaining a national coalition of CTE leaders, administrators, organizations and businesses; and organizing public awareness campaigns to support CTE.
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 new Sector Sheets on careers in Information Technology, Biosciences, and Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources
These efforts are critical to 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.
Our CTE Support Fund mugs and other merchandise are available here
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 Kevin Oshinskie to learn more.
