Giving Tuesday 2021

Board President Tom Aldrich of DPR Construction and Board Member Ray Houle of New England Finish join our ED Jen Fries to accept the generous National Gypsum donation.

On November 30, 2021, Giving Tuesday, National Gypsum made an amazing $35,000 donation to the ACE Mentor Program of Greater Boston, on the recommendation of the Portsmouth Gold Bond plant. A huge thank you to everyone who made this possible, especially Ray Houle of New England Finish, who insists on using Gold Bond products in his builds, and to Tony Visconti and James Bennett of National Gypsum. We are so grateful for your support, and we loved the tour, where we saw the product being engineered and manufactured. Wow! #givingtuesday2021 #NationalGypsum #goldbondbuildingproducts #acementor #acementorboston #mentoringmatters

Our strategic plan

Adopted April 2021

 

In April 2021, the Board of Directors of the ACE Mentor Program of Greater Boston adopted a strategic plan with four major goals:

1. Fundraising: Increase fundraising for scholarships by 10% annually, while also diversifying fundraising for program operations.

2. Sustainable growth: Increase the number of students served by 10% annually. Increase mentor recruitment proportionally.

3. Alumni engagement: Re-engage alumni as mentors and on ACE committees and the Board. Offer opportunities to ACE alumni to advance their careers. 

4. Board and program diversity: Increase the racial diversity of our board and mentor pool. Increase the gender diversity of our board. Build partnerships with other organizations serving BIPOC people around shared goals.
