Support ACTA


Americans have a strong history of giving to support their principles and beliefs. To meet the challenges facing higher education—from declining academic standards and soaring tuition to political intolerance and speech codes—ACTA relies on this tradition. Since ACTA receives no government funding, we depend on the generosity of people like you and your dedication to the promise of higher education and the restoration of confidence in its effectiveness.

“Congratulations on the important work you are doing… What you are fighting for has never been more important.”

“As someone who sees the trends (many disheartening, some hopeful) from ‘in the trenches,’ I am so grateful for ACTA’s gradual but sure and well-earned ascendancy as a nationally recognized force for positive change.”

Professor Phillip Stambovsky
Fairfield University

“Wise giving to higher education requires as much care as any other purchase or investment. . . intelligent donors have a valuable ally in a group called the American Council of Trustees and Alumni.”
