Grants and funding
We award approximately $50,000 in grants each year to teachers, partner with Bartlesville public schools and community leaders to raise funds for new programs and honor outstanding teachers through our Educator Hall of Fame and Bruins of the Year. Our goal is to inspire learning, enrich teaching and accelerate the learning environment.
The Bartlesville Public Schools Foundation is a privately funded non-profit advancing quality education for students in Bartlesville public schools. Since 1985 we have funded over $3.5 million in creative projects to support state-of-the-art instruction and facilities.
We are an affiliate of the Bartlesville Community Foundation with a common goal to ensure Bartlesville continues to be a great place to live and work. Directing generous support by donors, along with an existing endowment, helps meet the challenges local public schools face in preparing students for success.
