Founded in 2001, the Foundation for Tulsa Schools was established to build a better community through the support of Tulsa Public Schools.

The Foundation believes that every child should have access to a quality education, the resources they need to learn, and a supportive environment in which to learn.

The Foundation for Tulsa Schools is honored to be a champion for TPS students, teachers, and staff. We serve as a bridge between those who are passionate about public education and those who learn in, teach at, and support our schools.

The Excellence fund

Nothing is more satisfying than seeing how education transforms lives for the better. Whether you are a Tulsa Public Schools alum, a grateful parent or grandparent of a current or former TPS student, or a fierce champion of public education, supporting the Excellence Fund at the Foundation for Tulsa Schools is a wonderful and meaningful way to give back and invest in our students and teachers.

At the Foundation for Tulsa Schools (FTS), we work hand in hand with our district partners to enhance the learning experience for our students both in and out of the classroom. Our impact is far-reaching. We supplement student learning by funding field trips and classroom projects. We fund teacher appreciation events and awards. We address the teacher shortage by supporting teacher pipeline initiatives, and we are helping to fuel Tulsa’s economy by implementing workforce development endeavors.
When you support FTS, you are helping to shape the future of Tulsa. Our children are our community’s greatest and most critical resource. They are the future of Tulsa. They will be tomorrow’s leaders, engineers, scientists, physicians, teachers, workers, parents, and caregivers.

Your financial support helps us provide TPS students with the opportunities to unleash their potential and pursue their dreams, whatever that may be. Thank you for partnering with us to advance public education in Tulsa.

Sincerely,

Anhna K. Vuong
President & CEO

Students come to TPS from every walk of life. As the largest school district in Tulsa, Tulsa Public Schools serves over 33,000 students, 79% of whom are economically disadvantaged and 78% are black, Hispanic, Native, Asian or multi-racial. We serve all students ranging from those who are gifted to those who may need an extra bit of help to be successful.

We need your support to ensure that TPS can continue to offer an enriching learning experience to our students. Sadly, Oklahoma ranks in the bottom 10th percentile in per pupil funding. To reach the national average for per pupil funding, Oklahoma would need to increase funding by 56% which is the equivalent of $4,524 per student. Compared to our neighboring states, Oklahoma has the poorest funded public education system. That’s why philanthropic support is critical to ensuring that our students can continue to take advantage of the breadth and depth of learning opportunities available at our 78 learning communities.

2023 Sponsorship opportunities

Our children are our community’s most critical resource. At the Foundation for Tulsa Schools (FTS), we invite you to partner with us to strengthen Tulsa Public Schools (TPS). TPS is an economic engine for Tulsa. With over 33,000 students, TPS is the largest education provider in the region, producing graduates that go on to be employed by many of Oklahoma’s leading companies. At FTS, we believe that our students have unbelievable potential and that if we invest in them in ways to help them unleash their potential, we can help put them on a path to long-term success. Our hard-working teachers, support staff, and school leaders are doing the best they can in the face of dwindling state support, budgetary challenges, and increased mandated social services. But they cannot do it alone. They need your support to provide a positive impact on our children and Tulsa’s future.

The business and philanthropic community has a tremendous stake in the future of public education in Tulsa. Investing in Tulsa Public Schools has the potential to yield tremendous returns. A well-educated and competitive workforce in Tulsa will provide existing companies with access to talent, help recruit new companies, and make Tulsa a more attractive community to work and raise a family. We hope you will consider renewing your support or becoming a supporter of the Foundation for Tulsa Schools. Together we can help create a brighter tomorrow for our students and our community.
