ACE Honor Roll of Supporters

​​The American Council on Education (ACE) is enhanced by the incredible generosity of our donors. Through their generosity, we are strengthening higher education leadership and enhancing the ability of institutions to innovate and adapt to the needs of today’s postsecondary education students. This honor roll celebrates donors who made gifts, pledges, or pledge payments between January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019 to one of three ACE Fellows Program funds, the Women's Leadership Legacy Fund, the Scholarship Fund for Leaders of Color, or the ACE President's Fund.​
