What We Do

The Foundation for Tulsa Schools (FTS), a 501(c) (3) community-based nonprofit, was formed in 2001 with a mission of building a better community through the support of Tulsa Public Schools. The organization is committed to raising revenues to increase educational opportunities, enlisting community support and business assistance in providing educational resources and opportunities, and communicating the need for continued community involvement in the process and mission of providing a first class public education.

The Foundation works closely with Superintendent Deborah Gist and her senior leadership team to provide district-wide strategic funding support to advance the goals and vision of Tulsa Public School’s five-year strategic plan “Destination Excellence.”
