We are excited to announce our new Corporate Partner opportunities! We want to invite you to join us for every EPSF event during the year with a one-time commitment.
There are several levels of partnership being offered. To find out more, review the outline of the Corporate Partner opportunities or you can find out more about single events on our website www.edmondpsf.org
Corporate Partner sponsorships have been structured to provide you with the opportunity to be part of more events for less than if you sponsored them individually. For example, the Presenting Partner commitment is $30,000, but if each event were sponsored individually, it would be $48,000. This past year, we have also increased awareness in the community about what our partners are doing for our students, teachers and schools by including them in every newsletter and on social media.

Your gift is always needed to help fill in the gap where funding falls short for Edmond Public Schools and is integral in allowing us to help support their needs.
The Edmond Public Schools Foundation works to support the needs of Edmond Public Schools. This past year has looked a little different in the ways the Foundation supported students. When transitioning to remote learning, the EPS Foundation provided internet access for 503 students who did not have it at home so they could continue learning. The EPS Foundation also provided support for tutoring to make sure students stayed on track during a difficult year, provided books for classroom sets so students would have their own copy, supported professional development to help with virtual learning, and provided hand sanitizer for schools and support locations.
Beyond pandemic specific responses like this, the EPS Foundation also invested $100,000 in classrooms through DonorsChoose. The Foundation also funded $98,000 in classroom grants, gave away $45,000 in cash and prizes to teachers and support staff at the Celebration of Excellence, supported Art in Schools to ensure all 3rd and 4th grade students received art education, provided support for teacher professional development and supported mental health curriculum district-wide.
This coming year, the EPS Foundation will continue to support many of these needs and others that may arise as public education faces tough challenges. Edmond Public Schools teachers and staff personally donate about $50,000 annually!
Please consider joining us as a Corporate Partner to support our students, teachers and schools. I, or any of our board members, are happy to visit with you and answer any questions you may have about our new Corporate Partner opportunities and the needs in our schools.
As always, on behalf of the educators and students we serve, thank you for your continued support!
Federal income tax law requires us to inform you that goods or services provided to you in return for your donation will be deducted from the total donation amount, within the limits prescribed by law, making the remainder of your gift is deductible for Federal Income tax purposes.
