Investors can count on Summit Education Initiative

Summit Education Initiative (SEI) is a good steward of the support it receives from the community.

Every dollar invested supports SEI’s work related to the six Key Transition Points along the Cradle to Career Continuum.Cradle to Career Continuum

An endowment fund, created by community leaders and organizations when SEI was founded in 1996, provides a solid financial base for SEI. This endowment is generously supplemented primarily by local foundations, corporations and individuals.

SEI keeps overhead costs to a minimum.

SEI outsources many functions, rather than hiring staff.

SEI builds organizational capacity through collaborations.

SEI continues with sound fiscal management and its controls that are in place to ensure that investors’ contributions are safeguarded and well-used. Annual audits completed by Bober Markey Fedorovich for fiscal years 2012 – 2016 have been 100 percent clean; SEI hasn’t received any citations and no errors or concerns have been noted.
