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.
The Educational Enrichment Foundation, with the help of the 2019 Class of Tucson Greater Leadership (GTL),opened our Hygiene Pantry at 3809 E. Third. St., Tucson, AZ in August 2019.
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.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.
