2013 Annual Review

Announcing AEF’s 2013 Annual Review

We hope your year is off to a great start! AEF is thrilled to announce our 2013 Annual Review– a look back through our inaugural year, which would not have been a success without your support! As we continue to prepare for our First Annual Gala on February 8, our 2013 Annual Review highlights the ways in which your contributions are directly impacting students who embody the diversity and perseverance of our immigrant community. As you read the report (available here), we hope you consider joining us at our First Annual Gala. 

In our first year, we received more than 325 applications and awarded $32,000 in Scholarships to our seven AEF Scholars. They are citizens and non-citizens, some attending Ivy League colleges, others starting at community colleges, and representing countries such as Bangladesh, China and Mexico.

We invite you to help make 2014 an even bigger success by joining us on February 8 for our First Annual Gala at the Prince George Ballroom. 100% of the profits from the Annual Gala will be awarded as college scholarships. The evening will feature a four-hour open bar, food stations, multi-cultural performances, DJ and silent auction.

Tickets are now availble for purchase via Eventbrite. Please visit our Annual Gala website for more information: http://gala.ascendfundny.org

We hope to see you on February 8 as we Elevate the American Dream!

Warm Wishes and a Happy New Year-

AEF Board of Directors
