The SEP Foundation: Focused on what matters.
We’ve been blessed to be a successful tech company for over 30 years. In that time we’ve learned that people and community have been the most important pieces to our success. We’ve created The SEP Foundation because we admire and have compassion for the resiliency of those who have experienced hardships and we believe it’s our duty to support our neighbors who deserve the same opportunities.
We believe everyone in our community should have the opportunity to overcome the barriers and confines of poverty. We use our time, talents and financial resources to help veterans and families experiencing hardships to achieve self-sufficiency. Our grant recipients include Horizon House, HVAF, and The Last Mile.
HVAF helps homeless veterans return to self-sufficiency and engages at-risk veterans and their families to prevent them from becoming homeless by providing supportive housing, case management, food, hygiene, clothing, and other essential resources.
Horizon House offers services to help individuals and families overcome the barriers they’re facing. They provide a safe place and convenient access to services. These ongoing services help create changes in lives, and empower people toward more self-sufficiency.
The Last Mile
The Last Mile was founded at San Quentin State Prison to address the societal impact of incarceration as a drain on human and fiscal resources. The program provides computer coding training to prepare its students for release into today’s high-tech environment. Their core belief is that having a job is the key to successful re-entry and breaking the cycle of incarceration.
The SEP Foundation Maker Scholarship
Our dream of having a scholarship fund to support underrepresented groups pursuing further education in STEAM became a reality in 2020 with The SEP Foundation Maker Scholarship. Open to any Central Indiana resident, the scholarship was established to help students pursue a degree in a STEAM field at any accredited college, university, technical, vocational, or trade school in Indiana.
We’re excited to announce that our first recipient is “E,” a 2020 graduate of Cardinal Ritter High School, where she discovered a love of coding. She will be attending Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and plans to major in Computer Science.
