  • Hygiene Pantry

    The Educational Enrichment Foundation, with the help of the 2019 Class of Tucson Greater Leadership (GTL), will be opening a Hygiene Pantry at 3809 E. Third. St., Tucson, AZ.


    The pantry’s focus serves several purposes:  Providing TUSD students and families the supplies they need, removing barriers for school attendance, and boosting student confidence to be ready to learn and removing TUSD educators and school staff out of pocket expenses.

    These staff members currently stock a cupboard, shelf or a cabinet with hygiene items to supply student needs throughout the district. According to national studies, lack of hygiene items can lead to health issues, absenteeism, bullying and/or lack of self-confidence.


    Financial support for EEF's Hygiene Pantry can be donated at

  • In Memory of Robert (Bob) StraussIn Memory of Robert (Bob) Strauss

    The Educational Enrichment Foundation is saddened by the news that one of our founders, Bob Strauss, passed away on August 4th, 2019. Our hearts are with his family at this time. Bob was a truly exceptional member of our community who advocated for access to basic needs supplies and education for at-risk and underserved children. For 50 years, students benefited from his dedication to TUSD, EEF and various other local charities and non-profits. We are honored that Bob requested contributions to the “Robert A. Strauss Special Needs Endowment” with EEF in lieu of flowers. Through this fund, his memory will live on and even in his passing, his generosity will continue to benefit TUSD students for generations to come.

  • Support Manzo Elementary School: Rebuild Greenhouse and Aquaponics System
    Over the July 4th weekend, Manzo Elementary School was broken into and vandalized.  The majority of the damage was to their Greenhouse and Aquaponics System. The school lost over 100 pounds of Tilapia and other essential materials and equipment were stolen or vandalized. This is a serious setback to their Ecology Program and their student STEM and Agricultural learning. EEF calls upon the community to help support the rebuilding of Manzo's Greenhouse and Aquaponics System by providing a contribution through our giving page.  100% of proceeds will go to the Manzo Ecology Program to help rebuild and repair the Greenhouse and Aquaponics System.
