The Board of Directors of the International Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame has initiated an internal fund drive among Hall of Fame members to create an endowment of $1,000,000. This will serve to ensure perpetuity in the Hall of Fame’s efforts to honor leaders who have made exemplary contributions to our profession. Members of the Hall of Fame who make contributions to the endowment fund or contribute to the annual operating expenses will be recognized by giving level at the annual induction ceremony.
One way both to support the work of the Hall of Fame and to honor an individual’s contribution to adult and continuing education is to make a memorial gift. You may designate a memorial gift either to the Hall of Fame endowment or to general Hall of Fame operations.
