WHY YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS
Because our kids deserve it...because our teachers are already investing their own money into classrooms...because the EPS Foundation is making a difference for the entire district.
There is never a shortage of needs for our schools, but this year, the needs have been even greater. Due to an anticipated 5% budget cut for Edmond Public Schools, and the new challenges the pandemic has created for educating our students, we expect the district to need more support from the Foundation.
Goal: We are asking the community to match the $50,000 EPS employees donate to the ONE Edmond campaign!
Whether a Husky, Bulldog or Wolf, we are all ONE Edmond! Your gift helps us meet the needs of the entire district, whether that be professional development for educators, mental health and social emotional learning programs, student competitions or the Student Ambassador program, your gift impacts all of our kids!
Did you know that Edmond Public Schools educators and staff are the #1 donor to the ONE Edmond campaign, collectively donating $50,000 each year? Every dollar donated by EPS employees goes directly back into the classrooms through the Great Idea Grant program. Additionally, Oklahoma teachers pay, on average, $459 out of pocket for their own classrooms.
When you consider there are 1,627 classrooms in the district, if each teacher is spending $459 for their classroom, and teachers and EPS employees are giving $50,000, that equals $796,793 teachers and staff are putting into the education of our children out of their own pocket...astonishing!
The average gift from an Edmond Public Schools employee is a $89 one-time gift or $9 monthly gift through payroll deduction. Will you consider a gift of $100 or $10 a month?
You can make a one time donation on this page. If you are setting up a monthly, ongoing gift, please do that HERE
