Our Supporters

ACE MV could not provide the certificate, license, and degree programs that we do without the financial support we receive from individual donors, family foundations, and business sponsors.

A donation in any amount is appreciated and used to support our programming efforts for all members of the Vineyard community, providing positive impact across ages, cultures, and borders. We are grateful for all of our supporters, many of whom are listed below.
