Invest in your Future–Unlimited Pathways

The ambassadors of UAEC are a dedicated group of donors who make an annual unrestricted gift to the Urbana Adult Education Center. The Ambassadors understand and value the unique role that the Urbana Adult Education Center (UAEC) plays in East Central Illinois– offering people renewed hope to transform and actively engage in the revitalization of their neighborhoods and communities. Your gifts help us provide opportunities for intellectual growth and civic engagement regardless of age, ethnicity, education, or geographic location. Won’t you say Yes to giving?

Say Yes to Giving! 

The goals of Invest in our Future–Unlimited Pathways are twofold:

  • to raise $5,000,000 for our endowment fund so we may support the continuation of the Urbana Adult Education Center to ensure that our students have unlimited pathways to become college- and career-ready
  • to raise awareness of the Urbana Adult Education Center and the benefits our programs have on the community, life-long-learning, and workforce development.


STEM UP Project

Students enrolled in any program at the UAE Center will be exposed to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics careers as viable and attainable career options.   Our fundraising goal is $250,000, become a donor or supporter today by calling  Marcellos Gray-Development and Finance Coordinator at 217-384-3530 for more information.
