Olney Education Foundation
Classes at OISD are in full swing! The Olney Education Foundation is rolling up its sleeves to push our students to new heights and we need your help! Please mark your calendar for Thursday, September 13, as we once again participate in Texoma Gives, a 16-hour day of giving sponsored by the Wichita Falls Area Community Foundation. This is the only time of year we actively seek donations from you to support Olney’s students with funds that are not available through local, state, and federal tax revenue.
Last year, the Foundation was able to:
Award nine scholarships to qualified seniors [fields of study include nursing, biology (pre-vet), welding, exercise sport medicine, and pre-dental]
Fund ACT testing for ALL juniors
offer dual credit scholarships to qualified students
offer $1,000.00 to each OISD campus
offer laptops and mentors for OEF scholarship recipients
An added goal this school year is to fund pre-ACT testing for ALL sophomores. None of this would be possible without donations from individuals like you! We would love for you to be part of our “giving day” this year by doing the following:
Step One: This is a preliminary step if you wish to consider the benefits
for the Foundation. When you receive this letter, please visit https://www.texomagives.org/or
