#GivingTuesday: Thank You!

We Want to Say Thank You!

At ACES, we’re dedicated to improving the quality of editing, proofreading, and the working lives of editors.

THANK YOU for your overwhelming generosity yesterday for Giving Tuesday.

With your support, we were able to raise $7,600 for the ACES Education Fund.

The Education Fund awards scholarships to college students who plan to pursue editing as a career. ACES will honor six aspiring editors for the 2021-22 academic year, bringing the total to more than 120 scholarships awarded since 1999.

In partnership with the Dow Jones News Fund, the Education Fund launched the Richard S. Holden Diversity Fellowship, a pilot program dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion by advancing early- and mid-career professionals in their work as editors and aspiring industry leaders. The second round of winners will be announced soon. 

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, not just for donating to ACES scholarships, but for the
important work you do every day to represent the field of editing.
