CCAE Needs Your Support!


Your gift to CCAE will assure that we continue our mission—to explore, create, and grow!

During this time of growth and innovation at CCAE, we celebrate the fact that we are a welcoming place where people thirsty for knowledge come to engage in civil discourse on the events of the day, to learn, to celebrate, to create art, to read poetry, to gather together to nurture talent and pursue personal growth.

Tuition covers only 80% of our costs. Help us to bridge this gap and maintain our role as a community anchor in Harvard Square—as we have been for nearly 150 years!

Do not underestimate the great impact your gift has, no matter the amount.

Of Course! 2019 - April 28

Thank you to our corporate sponsors, individual sponsors, restaurants, and supporters who made Of Course! 2019 the best ever!

Of Course! 2019 celebrated all that is best about CCAE. 275 guests enjoyed a wonderful evening, experiencing two sampler mini-classes at CCAE, then parading behind a brass band to The Charles Hotel ballroom where the best restaurants, vintners, and brewers in Cambridge provided us with an extraordinary meal. The sense of community was palpable, and the conversation was continuous and lively.
