CEI Foundation Celebrates Recent Fundraising Success

The CEI Foundation has secured $1.79 million in grant funding over the past fiscal year. Notable achievements include acquiring two buses worth $280,000 from the Federal Department of Transportation and Caltrans for the transportation department. TRANSPAC also contributed $176,000 for transporting seniors in Contra Costa County.

A successful capital campaign raised funds for new CEI centers in El Sobrante and Livermore, thanks to our generous donors. These funds will furnish and equip the centers, expanding access to PACE for more seniors.

Special thanks to the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, whose team visited CEI in March 2024. Their tour of the San Leandro center and meetings with President and CEO Maria Zamora and other key staff resulted in a $500,000 grant. Additional grants included $200,000 from the William G. Irwin Foundation and $60,000 from the HEDCO Foundation.

The Joseph and Vera Long Foundation awarded $50,000 to the WebLinks Program to provide advanced coursework. The Johnson & Johnson Northern California Retirement Group awarded a grant of $5,000 to support the WebLinks program. Alameda County Measure A contributed $61,000 for palliative care.  Kaiser Permanente gave $25,000 for an Access to Care Grant.

With these generous contributions, the CEI Foundation continues to support all CEI Fund programs, making a significant impact on our community. We look forward to more exciting developments!
