Take Action

At EO, we believe that a collaborative, coordinated approach is the best way to help communities thrive.  

Everything we do, from helping our littlest learners be ready for school to preparing adults with skills training, is done in partnership with organizations and people like you. 

There are numerous ways to get involved and make an impact. As a 501(c)3, EO relies on public support for donations, grants, sponsorships, and volunteers, so there is a path for anyone who wants to get involved and take action. 

Our resource development and fundraising team is always available to match you or your group with an activity or opportunity that meets your goals. Drop us a note or give us a call, and let's go far together!
