Just five more days to have your to ACEs Connection gift matched, dollar-for-dollar! Does your employer match charitable donations? Turn a $25 gift into a $100, or a $250 gift into a $1000!

Now’s the time to make your donation to ACEs Connection, as we’re just $15,000 away from meeting the requirement to earn a matching grant for $50,000 during our ACEs Connection Changemaker Matching Grant campaign. If you work for a company that matches charitable donations, the incentive to give is even greater, as your gift will be “double-matched”! “During our Changemaker Matching Grant campaign, your donation, when matched by your employer’s corporate match, turns a $250 gift into a $1000...

We’re well past the half-way point in our goal to raise $50,000 in the ACEs Connection Matching Grant Campaign!

Thanks to the generous support of the more than 130 people who donated, we are more than half-way to our goal to raise $50,000. And we have no doubt that we’ll get there! To recap, we began this campaign in November with a challenge from an anonymous donor, who told us that if we could raise $50,000, there would be another $50,000 coming. Our original deadline was December 31, but we closed our doors during the last part of December and the beginning of January to give our very tired staff a...

I spent 20 years in law enforcement, and saw a lot of the same people coming into the system over and over again. ACEs Connection is a community that shares ideas about how we can actually make a difference in children’s lives.

Hi. My name is Christopher Freeze and I support ACEs Connection. It’s a great organization, one I’ve come to love and enjoy over the last couple of years. It’s something that’s really been meaningful in my life. I spent over 20 years in law enforcement, and saw a lot of the same people coming into the system over and over again. And I realized the messages I’d probably heard most of my career, most of my life, about “tough on crime” and “we just gotta have more resources” and “more focus”...
