Two Foundations ~ United
The Humanex Foundation proudly works together with the ACT Foundation awarding Humanex Academy students with the Alex C. Teves financial need-based scholarship. Our Foundations are united through Alex C. Teves, a 2011-12 Counseling Intern at Humanex Academy. Alex, our True Hero, loved counseling students with unique learning needs, craft beer, and giving free hugs. Alex was tragically killed in the Aurora Theater shooting on July 20, 2012. The Teves family set up the Alex C. Teves Memorial Scholarship Award as a way to honor his life and preserve his legacy.

Two Foundations ~ What we accomplish in 2019
The ACT-Foundation donors raised over $37,000 for the 2019-2020 Alex C. Teves Memorial Scholarship Award. Thanks to your donations we awarded 10 students with scholarships so they could either begin or continue their studies at Humanex Academy.
Professional Development Fund: Thanks to our Humanex Foundation donors, we were able to sponsor a conference fee for a teacher, provide support for an online course, and provide CPR training to the entire staff.
Technology Fund: We met our goal of raising $10,000! We replaced all the Humanex Academy staff computers, provided partial funding for student audiobooks, replaced 10 student Chromebooks, and purchased an iMac with an Epson printer for the school.
Two Foundations ~ One Fundraising Goal for 2020
2020 -2021 Fundraising Goal: $45,000
Our 2020 goal is to raise $35,000 for the Alex C. Teves Memorial Scholarship Award so we can continue to offer it to as many families as possible. Additionally, Humanex Foundation would like to raise an additional $5,000 for the Professional Development Fund to continue to offer outstanding opportunities for the staff to participate in and $5,000 for the Technology Fund to reach new educational goals and needs.
