Amplify Literacy. Amplify ACE.

When you invest in ACE, 100% of your gift goes to help prevent illiteracy in our community. We work one-on-one with kindergartners, first, and second graders in low-income schools who are struggling to read at grade level, but with your help we can set students on a path to success by the time they reach third grade! Don’t let illiteracy hold Austin’s youngest students back. Click below to give them the resources they need.

Although ACE is a program of the Charles A. Dana Center in the College of Natural Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin, ACE is fully self-supporting through grants and donations.

Gifts to the ACE program are tax deductible and directly support our work of providing high-quality, research-based bilingual tutoring to struggling readers in low-income elementary schools in Austin and Manor, Texas.
