The CSEA Foundation is a non-profit, charitable corporation created to fund scholarships to CSEA affiliate members, dependents, spouses and grandchildren (ACSS, CSEA, CSR, CSUEU, SEIU Local 1000 and UAW). In 2014, the Foundation was able to increase the amount of the scholarships due to donations in memory of former CSEA President Yolanda Solari, who dedicated much of her life to fighting for the rights of CSEA state workers. She was the third woman voted to serve as CSEA President. The Foundation received over $14,500 dollars in her honor. These donations have created stable base for the Foundation, which was created during Yolanda's term as President.
The Foundation has awarded six (6) $1500 scholarships to the following dependents and grandchildren from qualified CSEA affiliates; ACSS, CSR, CSUEU and SEIU Local 1000. The best essay award was won by Austin Lovell. Austin's sponsor was Howell Lovell from ACSS, Chapter 503.
