Fiscal Sponsored Projects

EEF Fiscal Sponsorship

As a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, EEF is able to partner with parent and community groups to help fundraise for EEF mission-compatible projects for TUSD teachers, students, and school sites. From help with grant writing to accounting, EEF’s Fiscal Sponsorship program works to make valuable community-initiated projects a reality for TUSD students, teachers, social workers, and health professionals. For more information about applying for fiscal sponsorship through EEF, please call the EEF office.

Current EEF fiscally sponsored projects:

  • The John B. Wright School Enrichment Project (began in 2012 with the construction of a school garden. After the first crops of food were harvested, donors installed a kitchen classroom where parents can participate in healthy eating workshops to learn to cook vegetables harvested at the school garden. In 2015, a walking path was installed on the school campus for use by both students and residents in the neighborhood.)
  • Peace From Paul (a partnership with Tucson High Magnet School to build a state-of-the-art sound and recording studio that will provide local high school students with opportunities to learn all aspects of studio production)
