Aces 4 Kids –

ACES (Athletes Committed to Educating Students) is an after-school program dedicated to reducing the academic achievement gap and improving the likelihood of success for under-served students in the Twin Cities. ACES’ sports-themed academic programming brings learning to life for our students, with curriculum activities that get youth interested and engaged in sports history, statistics and science. By showing students that what they are learning in the classroom applies to something they’re passionate about – sports – it translates to improved grades and a new passion for their own education. Your support not only helps provide opportunities for students to succeed, but also provides a positive role model to a child in our community, reduces the student-to-adult ratio in our classrooms, and develops tomorrow’s leaders. Learn More

Jack’s is on a mission to improve the way men think, feel, and act in their role as a cancer caregiver.  Their hospitality brings these men together, and together they improve. Learn More
