Donation Information: If you are unable to attend but would like to donate to the EOP Alumni Chapter for book awards, go to the EOP Upcoming Events Page.

The EOP Alumni Chapter is also seeking business products or any other items that can be used to create gift baskets for an opportunity drawing that will take place during the tournament’s award ceremony.

Proceeds from the opportunity drawing will be used to fund book awards for low-income underrepresented and underserved college students. Over the years, as tuition has increased, so has the cost of textbooks. In some instances, students have to decide between textbooks and food. The book awards ease the burden for students to help cover their textbook costs.

The CSUSB Educational Opportunity Programis committed to providing access to higher education for historically low-income, underserved, underrepresented, disadvantaged students who have the potential to succeed at the university level.

EOP recruits, retains and graduates students by providing a comprehensive program of support services that include admission, academic advisement, career and personal counseling, tutoring, financial assistance and graduate school information.

The CSUSB EOP Alumni Chapter is a nonprofit organization established to provide the opportunity for academic and lifelong success of historically low-income, educationally disadvantaged and/or first-generation college students who seek a future of educational prosperity. The alumni chapter’s goal is to supplement the efforts of the EOP staff, to help raise funds for book awards and to help educate our state’s elected officials about the importance of providing at-risk students with the support necessary to succeed in college.
