Shelter Oklahoma Schools Fund
The Shelter Oklahoma Schools Fund was established following the devastating May 20th tornado that hit Moore, Okla., and destroyed several elementary schools including Plaza Towers Elementary School where seven children lost their lives. The purpose of the fund is to provide storm shelters in and around Oklahoma schools and communities. The fund was started to help Oklahoma for generations to come and it will work with local schools and municipalities to address the issue of protecting our children by equipping our schools and public places with adequate shelter. 100% of the donations will stay in Oklahoma.
The fund was created on May 22nd, 2013 and has already raised almost $200,000 including a $100,000 donation from Norman Chrysler Jeep Dodge and a $25,000 donation from Kendrick Perkins of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Shelter Oklahoma Schools is administered by the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. Gifts to the fund receive the maximum tax benefit allowed for charitable gifts.
