Thank you!

We’re so glad you joined us April 20 for ACI’s Annual Benefit Reception! Your presence helped us generate the financial resources we need to grow ACI’s Expanded and Enhanced Peer Mentoring Program, and we welcomed new friends to ACI.

We’re proud to announce we raised more than $90,000, plus a $32,000 matching grant from Council of Independent Colleges’ First Opportunity Partners Grant Program in support of ACI’s Peer Mentoring Program.

Whether you attended or not, there is still time to contribute to our 2018 goal for ACI’s Peer Mentoring Program, which requires approximately $200,000 to fund 11 campuses. From now until May 31, 2018, when we close our fiscal year, you can make a special gift that will be credited to this fund.

Make a note on your check to say, “2018 Benefit Reception for Peer Mentoring,” and we’ll add in your contribution when we tally the final results. Send your check to Associated Colleges of Illinois, 70 East Lake Street, Suite 1418, Chicago, IL 60601.

Or, make your gift online and add a special instruction on our PayPal form to say, “2018 Benefit Reception for Peer Mentoring:”

Thanks to speakers and performers!
