Help Students Vote in 2019-2020

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

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 the 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 – Helps create our nonpartisan candidate guides

$1,000 – Pays the Student Fellow stipend 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.
