Chevron’s 2015 Fuel Your School Program: buy gas, help schools

Monday, September 14, 2015

Chevron U.S.A. Inc. announced the launch of its 2015 Fuel Your School program, an innovative collaboration with DonorsChoose.org, an online organization that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need, in King County.

Building on the 67,881 local students who benefitted last year, Fuel Your School is now in its second year in King County and will generate up to $600,000 this fall, which will help fund classroom supplies and materials, including those focused on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and hands-on activities to help connect real world experiences to classroom learning. 

“We're excited for the return of Chevron's Fuel Your School program to help excite students about their studies, including in the subjects of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM),” said Marian Catedral, public affairs representative for Chevron. “Chevron is committed to supporting STEM at every stage - from early education through employment.”

Beginning Sept. 1, 2015, public school teachers from King County are invited to post eligible classroom projects at www.DonorsChoose.org. Then, from Oct. 1 through Oct. 31, 2015, the Fuel Your School program will donate $1, up to a total of $600,000, to help fund eligible classroom projects when consumers purchase eight or more gallons of fuel at participating Chevron and Texaco stations.

Last year, Chevron’s Fuel Your School program helped fund 497 eligible classroom projects for public schools in King County, including Ms. Solarek’s classroom at Olympic Hills Elementary School in Seattle. Ms. Solarek, a first grade teacher, received math resources such as games, manipulatives and activities with the help of the Fuel Your School program. These materials were used to help strengthen her students’ math and critical thinking skills. 

For a full list of participating communities in the 2015 Fuel Your School program and to track local projects in need of funding, visit the website.

In addition to funds generated through the Fuel Your School program, anyone, including consumers and Chevron employees, may also independently browse and fund inspiring classroom projects on DonorsChoose.org by making separate, individual donations.

Founded in 2000, DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Visit DonorsChoose to hear the story.
