2016 Scholarship Fundraising Challenge Results

For the third year, the ACFE challenged chapters to raise funds for the ACFE Foundation’s Ritchie-Jennings Memorial Scholarship Program. This year we set records in the total amount donated as well as the largest donation by a single chapter. 

Here are the results of the challenge:
