WHY DOnorsChoose?

The EPS Foundation adopted the DonorsChoose platform to reach thousands of EPS students through classroom projects, and to ease the burden of teachers who are making purchases from their own pockets.   DonorsChoose also gives us the opportunity to leverage support from outside the Edmond community for our schools!  

To date, donors from 48 states have supported Edmond classrooms through DonorsChoose!  We see a 5 to 1 return on our investment using the DonorsChoose platform, which helps us support other programs including mental health, Art in Schools, educator professional development and more!  
UPDATE 8/15/22:  
  • The EPS Foundation kicked off the new school year with kickstarter grants of $100.  Over $65,000 was invested in EPS classrooms in August 2022 for the Back to School campaign!  
  • We are launching a new campaign 9/20 that will start the $100 kickstarter program over and last until Spring Break, or until funds are depleted. 
  • You can create a DonorsChoose project any time, even when the EPS Foundation does not have an active campaign.!
  • The average project size that gets fully funded is $450 or less.
  • Teachers Pay Teachers and gift card projects are not eligible for funding from the EPS Foundation.
