Empowering people to overcome hardship and create a community where all people reach their full potential.
Providing relief and resources to those in need in the greater Tucson area by maximizing our financial strength and community partnerships.
CEP has reinvented itself with a vision to serve the Greater Tucson area by providing financial assistance and empowering people to overcome hardship while we do our part in creating a community where all people can reach their full potential. To meet that end, our funding of established programs within our family of non-profit partners has begun.
So far since our pivot, we have donated
Donations included monetary gifts, books, art/craft supplies, athletic equipment, games, science kits, STEM skill sets, desks, cabinets, tables, chairs, office chairs, technology, office supplies, bulletin boards, storage containers, Covid sanitation supplies, music instruments and other miscellaneous items.
Through the Lou Cisco Memorial Scholarship CEP provides financial support to graduating high school students so that they are prepared to be successful in their post secondary endeavors.
Our Pilot Grant Programs allow teachers and students to implement programs to support learning in the classroom and to provide valuable experiences for students to engage in service projects in their community.
Providing opportunities for underprivileged students so they can experience enrichment activities that encourage academic excellence and community service is the the foundation of the Brannon Education Enrichment Program.
We have found, especially during the pandemic, that schools often need to make purchases such as PPE, washing machines, and other non-traditional items to support the well-being and learning needs of students. Our Sunny Day Fund offers grants for these types of needs.
Our targeted donations to several well established programs at Assistance League of Tucson allows them to better serve our community members in need.
We provide financial support to the Alumni Program at Youth On Their Own to assist young adults who require additional support and scholarships after they have graduated from high school.
We are currently working with several nonprofit organizations in Tucson to develop joint programs that support families. New programs will teach English, financial planning and management skills, and problem solving to help at-risk teens graduate from high school.
