Education Equity Fund NFP
EEF is a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt public charity dedicated to meeting critical labor market needs and expanding equitable opportunities for people of color and low-income/first generation students.
Education Equity Fund expands post-secondary educational opportunities and supports success in high-quality career-preparation programs. The goal of EEF is to enable students to pursue a chosen career path in a high-need profession.
Initially EEF supports a diverse group of high-potential, lower-income and first-generation candidates who require financial assistance so they may enroll in and complete excellent training and degree programs in preparation for success as K-12 Educators.
EEF provides straightforward, risk-mitigated financing to qualified candidates so that they may fully participate in high-quality teacher training programs that, absent our funding, would be unaffordable. The students we fund overwhelmingly identify as races and ethnicities that are under-represented in K-12 education. Our candidates pay back only when they are employed and earning $ 40,000.00 or more annually.
EEF partners with teacher training programs that have a demonstrated track record of quality and successful outcomes. Our partners identify promising students from target demographics who need financial assistance for tuition, living expenses, or other costs associated with their education. Partners provide the academic and other supports that enable students to persist, graduate and find employment.
