The education fund of the American Copy Editors Society is dedicated to helping college students who are interested in careers as editors. This year, ACES gave a total of $6,500 to five students and helped pay for their travel to the national conference in Philadelphia.
Here’s how you can help the fund:
- Attend the national conference and participate in the silent auction, which brought in more than $3,000 this year, including the $10 I spent on a Times-Picayune T-shirt.
- Buy a Talk Wordy To Me mug or shirt. Thanks to copy editor/blogger Brian White for giving profits of these items to the fund.
- Use Goodsearch, a search engine that gives some money to the charity of your choice every time you look for something online. Designate “American Copy Editors Society Education Fund” as your charity.
- Download a form and donate to the fund directly. Your gift is tax deductible.
Thank you for your support.
