Our Funds are raised by YOU
The Foundation is a grassroots organization. We travel from chapter to chapter, Union Board meeting to Board meeting talking to people and spreading our fund raising message. This past year was a banner fund raising success for the CSEA Foundation. We doubled our financial goal from last year thanks to generous donations of anonymous donors, chapters fund raising efforts and corporate sponsors. These donations will provide several scholarships for 2012.
