15 for 15 giving campaign

We're celebrating 15 years of mentoring in Houston this year, and in honor of this remarkable milestone, we are kicking off our 15 for 15 Campaign to raise $15,000 by the end of our 2023-2024 program year.

Over the past decade and a half, our dedicated volunteer mentors have shaped the future of countless young minds, guiding them towards careers in architecture, construction, and engineering. By contributing to our anniversary fundraising campaign, you're not just ensuring this transformative mentorship program continues to thrive; you're investing in the designers and builders of tomorrow. Your generosity will directly fund mentorship programs, scholarships, and educational resources that equip students with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in this dynamic industry. 

Join us in marking 15 years of inspiration, education, and community impact through mentoring, and help us pave the way for 15 more years of success stories. Together, we are working to build a stronger, more diverse, and better prepared AEC workforce one student at a time.

Annual Corporate Sponsorships

This fall kicks of ACE Houston's 15th year of mentoring high school students and empowering the next generation of architects, contractors, and engineers. Help us celebrate this milestone anniversary with an annual sponsorship to ensure the success of our program as we look ahead to the next 15 years. This organization, created by the industry, for the industry, is the largest AEC-focused program for high school students in the country. Each year, our team of volunteer mentors works hard to create engaging and educational curriculum, operate mentor locations across the city, and provide additional learning opportunities outside of our weekly sessions, and we can't do that without the support of our generous donors. Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $180,000 this year!

ACE Houston prides itself for supporting students from diverse backgrounds  – a true reflection of Houston’s broad diversity. It takes approximately $500 to provide support for each student per year, in addition to the scholarships that we offer to our seniors. Last year, we awarded $49,500 in scholarships to support students pursuing postsecondary education in the AEC industry, and we hope to increase that amount as we work to grow our program again this year. 

There is more information below about our 2023-2024 sponsorship opportunities, including a link to donate. If you have sponsored in the past, we hope that you will consider sponsoring again. If you are new to ACE Houston, we hope that you will consider getting involved and making a donation. Donations of any amount are welcome and help us meet our strategic goals. You have the opportunity to directly impact the future of the AEC industry and develop your talent pipeline by partnering with ACE.

Our sponsors help to ensure that we are able to offer life-changing career programs to Houston-area high school students at no cost. By funding the ACE, sponsors help to:
