Oklahoma School Foundation Impact Survey

We need YOU to help us measure the impact of public school foundations across our state!
Oklahoma has over 200 active school foundations. The impact of these education foundations is often overlooked, in part because it is very hard to collect and share data. The Oklahoma School Foundations Network would like to change that by collecting and publishing impact data each year. We are asking school foundations to take a short survey to share data we can use, along with updated contact information and board leadership information to keep our database up to date. Thanks for taking time to answer these questions so we can count YOUR local foundation and its impact on
education in your area.
