Ashley Stone, CFE
ACFE Chapter Development Manager
I am continually impressed by the hard work and the dedication to the anti-fraud profession by ACFE’s local chapter leaders. In 2014, the ACFE issued a challenge to local chapters to raise funds to support the ACFE Foundation’s Ritchie-Jennings Memorial Scholarship program. As usual, chapter leaders selflessly rose to the occasion to help fund this important initiative.
The 2014 Scholarship Fundraising Challenge wrapped up in December, resulting in more than $20,000 raised by local chapters to support future anti-fraud professionals. The results of the challenge are:
Platinum level (donations totaling more than $7,500):
• Houston Area Chapter
Also participating in the challenge was the Rhode Island Chapter.
The mission of the ACFE Foundation is to increase the body of anti-fraud knowledge by supporting future anti-fraud professionals worldwide through the funding of the Ritchie-Jennings Memorial Scholarship Program. The scholarship program provides an opportunity for men and women of all ages, races, religions and income levels to advance their education. Many of these outstanding and deserving students go on to become CFEs.
The ACFE and the ACFE Foundation would like to thank all of the chapter leaders and chapter members whose support will provide educational opportunities for students with an interest in fraud examination.
