Click Here to watch the newly released trailer of the CEF Documentary, produced by Rumsen Film. The full-feature documentary should be out by Mid-June and will be shown
at the Durham Public Library, but this pre-release is a really nice summary of who we are and what we do.
Double Your Dollars

Up and Coming
Annual UNC Box-Out Fundraiser!
- April 1st
Partnering with El Centro Latino, Latino Credit Union, and the Human Rights Center in Carrboro, CEF began expanding their services to the Hispanic population in Chapel Hill / Carrboro in the summer of 2010. Seven CEF Advocates came together to form CEF Latino and facilitated a six week course on Small Business Training in the Fall. Participants worked through everything from business plans and cash flow to basic budgeting and marketing, and brought business ideas to the table like
Child Care, Cleaning Services, Mobile Hair Salons, and Street Food Vending.
With the success of their first training, CEF Latino is pushing forward and plans to launch a second round of training in Mid-March. They have also just begun to offer TAX ASSISTANCE to the community and held a CEF Latino Tax Day just last week. If any still needs help with their taxes, in english or in spanish, please email us info@communityempowermentfund to schedule an appointment.
