SEO Annual Fund

We are introducing something new to SEO – an Annual Fund.

Colleges and universities, arts and cultural organizations, and hospitals all have one. It’s a simple way of encouraging alumni, board members, and friends to make cash gifts, which are the most precious and the hardest to raise.

Your gift to the new SEO Annual Fund directly supports the Scholars program, which helps 2,000 low-income high school and college students gain the essential skills and confidence they will need for long-term academic and professional success and positive civic engagement.  Indeed, Annual Fund dollars literally help us pay for instructors, supplies and materials, technology, and new online curricula and pedagogy, which are now necessary because of COVID. With your support, 90% of Scholars earn their bachelor’s degrees – vs. 20% of low-income college students nationally.

Thanks for considering supporting the SEO Annual Fund.
