ACEnet launches fundraising campaign
(2008-01-21)
(WOUB) - For the first time in more than 20 years, ACEnet is having a multi-year fundraising campaign.

It's called Vision 2010 and the goal is to "infuse new energy into our region's economic activities."

Angie Cantrell is president and CEO of ACEnet, also known as the Appalachian Center for Economic Networks, and she hopes to raise $2 million in the next three years.

ACEnet is a non-profit organization based in Athens which helps people start new businesses.

It's funded primarily through grants.

ACEnet hopes to get more of those from federal and state agencies by bringing in local dollars from the fund drive.

The money will be used to upgrade ACEnet's facilities and programs.
