Leadership Donors

Thank you to our Generous Individual Donors and Corporate Sponsors!

Annual Fund

With a gift to Cambridge Center for Adult Education’s Annual Fund, you can help us advance our mission to provide affordable, experiential, face-to-face adult learning in its two historic homes on Brattle Street.

Supporting a wide range of operational needs, the Annual Fund enables us to offer new classes, hire accomplished instructors, and establish innovative events and programs. The Annual Fund supports our talented teachers and dedicated staff, helps launch this new, mobile-friendly website, increases our marketing efforts and profile in the community, and allows us to offer free classes to fellow non-profits in our neighborhood.

Your generosity to CCAE’s Annual Fund allows us to grow and thrive, to meet new challenges and create new goals, to be deeply committed to our mission.
