CCAE Needs Your Support!

Student-Learning-In-Class

RESILIENT, RESOURCEFUL, RESPONSIBLE

These attributes have provided a roadmap for our organization in navigating this pandemic. Thanks to our journey over the last year, we can now welcome you back to CCAE! Whether you are taking an online or an in-person class, CCAE is here for you this year—with its customary, always changing menu of excellent, timely, and innovative classes. But we need your help!

Support CCAE today with a tax-deductible donation! Over 600 donors contributed $650,000 to CCAE through our COVID-19 Fund last year, enabling us to continue our mission during this time. But this year is even more challenging, as COVID continues and our COVID-19 Fund dwindles. Every dollar supports our mission to offer excellent community-based adult learning, but also funds the two historic buildings in Harvard Square that make up our campus, our innovative instructors, our robust scholarship offerings, and our community outreach programs. It also—very importantly—allows us to keep tuition low. A gift now to CCAE will ensure that our community will continue to grow, create, and thrive!

Do not underestimate the great impact your gift has, no matter the amount. Make a gift today!*

“I discovered CCAE when I got out of college, and I picked up the catalog, and I flipped through it and I said 'THIS is where I wanted to be the last four years.'”
