    Buy your tickets to participate in the
    ACHE Conference Fun'Raising Tours!


    Each year, ACHE holds a Fun'Raising drive as a part of the Annual Conference to raise money for grants and scholarships.  All of the proceeds go toward supporting the educational needs of graduate students studying in adult and continuing higher education.  Help us reach our goal of $3,000 to help empower the best and brightest students to become beacons for our future.

    A variety of Fun'Raising events will be held throughout the conference.  Keep your eyes and ears open for all the ways you can make a Fun'Raising donation.  One of those is participating in Newport culture through local tours on Monday and Tuesday night.
