2016 Annual Campaign

By Biju Chacko, Annual Campaign Chair |  August 2016


Greetings Colleagues! Because of you, ACPE has already gotten off to a great giving start in 2016. We’re halfway through the year, and have already raised over $49,000 in gifts and pledges. Indeed, we are well on our way to meeting our 2016 fundraising goal of $85,000!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We continue to need your charitable investment and support.  If you haven’t done so already, please join me in making a monthly gift of $10, $25, $50 or $100 to ensure ACPE has consistent resources to support our holy work. 

For example, did you know that:

  • For every $1 a Supervisory Education Student spends on his/her training, ACPE spends $4. Your gift helps to ensure that our training process remains accessible to a diverse array of students.
  • Every year, ACPE is reviewed by the U.S. Department of Education in order to maintain our status as the only accreditor of clinical pastoral education with the U.S. Department of Education. In recent years, the annual review fee has increased tenfold. Your gift ensures we are able to comply with all standards so that we can remain the premier provider of spiritual care education. 
  • ACPE maintains student unit records dating back to the 1940s. We receive and file over 8,000 new records each year. We are constantly updating the way we store these records as technology continues to evolve. Your gift ensures that we are able to keep an accurate account of the scope of our work, demonstrating the quality and impact of our methods of education.
These are just a few ways your gift makes a difference. In the sweltering heat of this summer, you can create a comfortable temperature of giving. Donate today!
