The Foundation for Tulsa Schools is committed to providing educational resources and opportunities for all students at Tulsa Public Schools. With community support and assistance we are able to offer teachers the ability to apply for Grants for Great Ideas, take advantage of the Explore Tulsa program, and prepare their students for learning with regular Teacher Supply Days. In addition, we’re excited to launch the Teacher Appreciation Grants, an initiative specifically for principals to apply on behalf of their teachers. 


Are you a teacher with a great idea?

 Tulsa Public Schools teachers can request a grant up to $250 and apply once per school year.

To qualify for this grant, teachers will need to do the following: 

  1. Put the project on
  2. Include Tulsa Public Schools in the description of the project on DonorsChoose.  
  3. Email Brena Meadows Thrash the link to the DonorsChoose project.

Helping students dream big by showing them Tulsa’s culture and history.

Funded field trips for Title I schools

Despite a thriving cultural neighborhood in Tulsa, many low-income students spend little time in the core of the city.  Students need to believe that Tulsa is a city they can live in, contribute to, and a place that welcomes them. In order to build strong bonds between our promising students and the city of Tulsa, the Foundation for Tulsa Schools is excited to foster a grant opportunity for Title I schools in the Tulsa area. Explore Tulsa exposes students to the cultural and historical treasures of our area, allowing them to dream big in their academic and personal pursuits. Teachers from Title I schools within Tulsa Public Schools can submit ideas for field trips and receive funding for bus transportation. 

Allstate Helping Hands

We would like to thank the Allstate Foundation for partnering with us to provide funding for transportation that allows students to take field trips and explore Tulsa. Through the Helping Hands Grant, we are able to expand students’ minds and creative thinking, increase social awareness of their community and offer space for them to dream big about their futures. Together, we help communities thrive.
