ACE (Achieving Community Excellence)

Achieving Community Excellence (ACE) was created by the Greeley City Council in 2012 to support its objective to improve Greeley’s Civic Infrastructure. ACE envisions a community that recognizes and capitalizes on the power that aligned principled relationships have to build and sustain community excellence.

For ACE, relational excellence means that we seek, develop, and multiply for the purpose of bringing people together to address issues bigger than themselves. The ACE vision for relational excellence is explained by the ACE Pyramid.


Greeley-RemarkableThe City hosted the Greeley Remarkable event at the new Hilton DoubleTree hotel and with support from Greeley businesses worked to begin aligning workforce development efforts, i.e. high school and college educational offerings, with real-life employment opportunities.

The ACE Fund, under the auspices of the Community Foundation Serving Greeley and Weld County, is governed by a volunteer Advisory Board of Directors called the ACE Ambassadors. Comprised of school, business, and community leaders, the ACE Ambassadors believe in the values of the ACE Pyramid and are knowledgeable about the needs of Northern Colorado region.

ACE is honored to work with community and business sponsors to support meaningful community priorities and developing needs. The ACE Ambassadors guide the direction of the ACE Fund by overseeing its projects and ensuring that charitable gifts are administered according to the wishes of the donor.
