Help Students Vote in 2021

How do we help America’s 20 million students navigate obstacles from political cynicism to ever-changing voter laws?

CEEP has found a powerful and cost-effective way by using the resources of their schools.

CEEP empowers America’s colleges and universities to help their students register, volunteer in campaigns, navigate daunting new voter laws, educate themselves on candidates and issues, and turn out at the polls. Because we work through administrators and faculty whose salaries are paid for by the schools, and through key student leaders, our nonpartisan and tax-deductible project has a huge multiplier effect for the resources invested.  

CEEP has been Miami Dade College’s most important partner in our nonpartisan voter engagement efforts. They provide stipends, training, and support to their student Fellows, advice on putting together our election engagement website, and invaluable nonpartisan election and candidate guides. We love CEEP and want to continue to expand our partnership with them in the coming years.” – Josh Young, Civic Engagement Coordinator of Miami Dade College’s 165,000-student system

Sponsor a Fellow in 2021

CEEP’s student Fellowship program is one of our flagship initiatives, and we are excited to give you the chance to support these Fellows directly. Using our online donation link, you can select your preferred state and help sponsor a civic leader as they engage with thousands of students on their campus.

Your support today can help impact elections this year and for years to come. Students who vote when they’re young are likely to continue throughout their lives, and the more we engage the schools, the more they commit each cycle. With your financial support, CEEP can do the following:

$75 – Supports a site visit to a key campus

$500 – Pays for a Student Fellow stipend to engage students on the ground

$1,000 – Pays for two Student Fellow stipends to engage students on the ground

$5,000 – Helps support a staffer to engage schools in a new state

$20,000 – Hires a half-time state outreach staff person to work with 40-50 schools.

Now that we’ve gotten our independent 501 (c) 3 status, checks or grants should now go to Campus Election Project, and are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.  They’ll continue to be mailed to the Ohio Campus Compact address at right, who will continue to handle our financials as an independent entity.

If you prefer to send a check, please make it out to Campus Election Engagement Project and send it to:
