Historic Tours and Ghostly Strolls – Fun’Raising Tours at ACHE in New Orleans

September 01, 2016 7:06 PM | Anonymous


Each year, ACHE holds a fundraising drive as a part of the Annual Conference to raise money for grants and scholarships. All of the proceeds go toward supporting the educational needs of graduate students studying in adult and continuing higher education. Donate today and help us reach our goal of $3,500 to help empower the best and brightest students to spearhead a positive future for our field.

Each tax-deductible $5 donation will earn the donor one entry into a drawing for a $500 gift card. The winner of the gift card will be will announced during the 2016 Annual Conference & Meeting in New Orleans. The winner need not be present. Donate now.

This year, we’re also providing other ways to get the most bang for your fun’raising buck. ACHE conference attendees are invited to participate in hair-raising Tour Tuesday options to make their donations in true New Orleans spirit.
