Since 2009, the Center for Prison Education has brought the transformative power of the liberal arts into Connecticut’s prisons. Donations made to the Center for Prison Education will provide our program with the support to cover costs associated with:

  • Improving and expanding our academic and co-curricular programming 
  • Textbooks and school supplies for current CPE students
  • Instructional materials
  • General operating costs


Donate to the CPE Re-entry Fund

CPE has established a Re-entry Fund to help all of our former students meet their short-term needs and ultimately support their pursuit of long-term goals. Check out our Re-entry Fund main page here for more information. Donations to CPE's Re-entry Fund will provide means to any former CPE students upon application to support costs which may include:

  • School entrance fees
  • School supplies
  • Technology (computer, phone)
  • Transportation assistance
  • Initial move-in costs
  • Interview clothing
  • Licensing fees
  • Job training program costs

What the Re-entry Fund does not cover:

  • Recurring cost-of-living expenses (monthly rent, monthly groceries, utilities)
  • Medical expenses
  • Full tuition
