The Foundation for Tulsa Schools recently received a donation of $3,500 from Anheuser-Busch. The company also donated funds to Tulsa’s Loaves and Fishes Ministries and the Catoosa Historical Society.

“We care deeply about our team members, neighbors and the strength of our community,” says Matt LoPorto, senior director of Anheuser-Busch Sales of Oklahoma. “These donations are reflective of our continued commitment to Tulsa and our fellow Oklahomans.”

Anheuser-Busch has more than 700 team members and three facilities in Oklahoma.
The Foundation for Tulsa Schools provides support to Tulsa Public Schools by raising resources, enlisting community and business support, and communicating the importance of public education. The nonprofit funds strategic initiatives including professional development, in-class room supports, STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education, social-emotional learning and school innovation.  

Since its formation in 2001, the nonprofit organization has raised over $20 million in support of Tulsa Public Schools.

“This contribution will help us support programs that increase attendance and graduation, promote teacher retention, and improve cost-effectiveness,” says Brian Paschal, president and chief executive officer for the Foundation for Tulsa Schools.

The Loaves and Fishes Ministries provide hot meals, groceries, personal care items and spiritual encouragement to Tulsa families and individuals in need of assistance. In addition, the nonprofit runs the Turning Point Thrift Store at 11403 E. 19th St. that provides immediate-need, affordable items.
