Leadership Donors

The Cambridge Center for Adult Education is dedicated to creating a safe, comfortable space for people to learn and grow. But we can't do it without your help.  Financial contributions from people like you ensure that CCAE is able to: 

  • Offer scholarships to students in need
  • Repair and restore our beloved historic buildings
  • Keep CCAE classes open and accessible to all.

Thank you to our leadership donors!
