As a proud parent of two wonderful ESP elementary school students and an active member in the Edmond community, I am excited to have the opportunity to help Edmond Public Schools through the EPS Foundation. Now more than ever, financial support from the community is paramount to the success of our public schools. Helping to keep our public schools strong is the key to sustaining a healthy community for generations to come. Our teachers think it is important that they donate more than $50,000 each year! By giving to the school system through the EPS Foundation, we can be assured that virtually all of the funds stay within our school district for programs that truly benefit our great students, teachers, supporting staff and our ONE Edmond community. Please join me in supporting the foundation in its effort to keep Edmond Public Schools strong!
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!
You can make a one time donation on this page. If you are setting up a monthly, ongoing gift, please do that HERE
