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.

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.

Maker Scholarship

The SEP Foundation Maker Scholarship

In 2020, our dream of establishing a scholarship fund to support underrepresented groups pursuing further education in STEAM became a reality.
