OPTION 2. The Forward Together Fund (FTF)

The Forward Together Fund (FTF) is a group of donors uniting with CAEL for American Success and is led by members of CAEL's Leaders Council who contribute at a level of $10,000 and above.The FTF is an ongoing fundraising initiative that allows CAEL to respond quickly to the policy and advocacy needs of our adult learner constituents not covered by CAEL’s funders.


The truth is that the majority of CAEL’s current revenue sources don’t fund policy or advocacy, nor research and development. With only a small pool of funders that support adult postsecondary degree attainment and/or workforce development programs, your support is urgent.
