Rotary Club of San Jose Gifts $9,500 to EOPS

rotary club logoThe Rotary Club of San Jose Foundation recently awarded the EOPS program a Community Grant of more than $9,500 to purchase computers and printers for its computer lab.

Extended Opportunities Programs and Services is a state funded program to assist low-income and academically disadvantaged community college students. Eligible students receive support services including early registration, personal and academic counseling, transfer assistance and book assistance. 

Nearly 800 De Anza students rely on the services provided by EOPS, and the office serves as a home base for most of them throughout their time at the college. The new EOPS computer lab will be dedicated in the spring.

“This generous donation will allow EOPS to provide in-office computer access and printing services to our students,” noted Michele LeBleu Burns, dean of EOPS/CARE and student development. “It is essential to our students' success that they have ready access to information online and are able to print class assignments. Thanks to the Rotary Club of San Jose, this expanded computer lab will remove a major barrier for them."

Founded in 1949 to support the charitable activities of the Rotary Club of San Jose, the foundation has given more than $5,000,000 to local and international projects including grants to 150 organizations that serve the community. The Rotary Club of San Jose, founded in 1914, is one of Silicon Valley’s most active service organizations and is made up of more than 3,000 business and community leaders.
