Give a Gift


Why Give

Each year the Foundation is charged with providing funding for creative and innovative programs and projects for our students. Your donations make this possible, so that we can continue as the catalyst for excellence in education. Without your donations, our district could not continue to enjoy these benefits to the classrooms. Our students are positively impacted from your special gift.

The Sand Springs Education Foundation is dedicated to providing the superior academic environment for all students. We are grateful for the continued support of our parents and patrons, who share the same vision of quality education for our district.
