ACPE Receives $75,000 grant to support a Collaborative Learning Platform for Multi-faith Education!  |  June 2016


In May the trustees of The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations approved a $75,000 grant to expand ACPE’s multi-faith curriculum offerings through the online ACPE Academy, and digitally outfit the ACPE classroom for distance learning opportunities! 

Through this grant, ACPE will partner with Interfaith Voices to produce a radio and podcast series of educational interviews with those involved in spiritual care in clinical settings from a variety of faith traditions. The series will be broadcast on over 80 Interfaith Voices stations nationwide, as well as made available online and on the ACPE Academy website. “We are delighted to partner with both The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations and Interfaith Voices,” said ACPE Executive Director Trace Haythorn. “We are honored to share in leadership of this project with such outstanding organizations, and we trust the larger world of spiritual care will benefit greatly from this project.”

This project will expand ACPE’S current educational offerings around spiritual care for minority and marginalized populations. This grant, along with $37,500 in funding from the F.I.S.H. Foundation, Price Gilbert, Jr. Charitable Fund and the Mary Allen Lindsay Branan Foundation sets ACPE well our way to being the premier provider of spiritual care education.

ACPE is excited about the philanthropic partnership with The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations, and we are grateful for their appreciation of CPE and spiritual care education!
