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.
Please consider making an investment in early childhood literacy. Gifts may be made:

Additional ways to give:
By including the ACE in your retirement and estate planning, you can diminish your tax burdens while supporting early literacy.
The impact of your gift to ACE may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
Are you a UT employee? If so, you can give to ACE through payroll deduction. Just type "ACE: A Community for Education" in the special gift information section.
Forming partnerships with foundations and corporations enables ACE to meet our AmeriCorps matching requirement. Contact Jessica O'Mary, ACE Development Director, for more information: 512-471-4924
