About EEF

Our Mission:  Providing resources to expand and enrich student learning in the Tucson Unified School District.

The Educational Enrichment Foundation (EEF) is an independent non-profit 501c3 organization founded by Tucson's community and business leaders in order to support the students and teachers within Tucson Unified School District schools.

Established in 1983, EEF is the oldest foundation of its kind in Arizona and serves 49,000 Tucson Unified students annually. Through its grants, scholarships, professional development programs, and community activities, EEF actively provides enhanced and enriched learning resources for Tucson Unified students, teachers, and schools, advocates for educational excellence for all children, and ensures access to educational enrichment opportunities within Tucson Unified for financially in-need students.

EEF programs are supported by corporate and non-profit grants, payroll deductions made by hundreds of dedicated Tucson Unified employees, and contributions from the general public.

Angel Charity logo Thanks to generous funding provided by the Angel Charity for Children, Inc., EEF is able to offer participation fee assistance to high school students and to middle school students during the 2017-2018 school year.
