Public School Funding Program

Home / About ONE Gas / Corporate Responsibility / Community Investments / Public School Funding Program

The goal of the ONE Gas Foundation Public School Funding program is to enhance the classroom experience in middle and high schools (grades 5-12) to promote workforce development in Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas from March 15 – October 15, 2021.

Giving Priorities

  • Classroom enrichment projects and instructional technology
  • Durable curriculum-based teaching materials and equipment
  • Projects reaching the greatest number of students

Process

The ONE Gas Foundation supports secondary education (grades 5-12) by partnering with DonorsChoose.org to support their teacher-driven funding platform. DonorsChoose.org is an independent 501(c)(3) organization operating a nationwide website spotlighting instructional needs in public school classrooms.

Through this partnership, the ONE Gas Foundation will review the applications submitted by teachers and award funds for those we believe represent maximum classroom enrichment. This competitive review process of STEAM proposals submitted by teachers involves internal evaluation of grant requests based on impact, innovation, socio-economic need, and estimated duration of use.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Grants will be given in public school districts located within ONE Gas’ territory.
  • Grants are awarded in allotments of $100- $2500, per teacher, for classroom-based STEAM related projects.
  • Grants will not exceed $2500 unless an exception is granted by the public-school funding program coordinator for ONE Gas.
