Our Mission 2019-2023

The mission and purpose of the BAPS Foundation is to enhance the educational experience of our students for success in life.

Letter From the President

On behalf of the 19,500 students who call Broken Arrow Public Schools home, THANK YOU for your generosity and support.


The Broken Arrow Public Schools Foundation was created in 1992 to promote academic excellence and foster and improve educational opportunities for the students of Broken Arrow.


I am so grateful to live in a community that believes in and supports a strong public school system like we do.


The BAPS Foundation has made a significant impact over the years by awarding hundreds of thousands of dollars in classroom grants and by funding other important projects – but the need is still great.


In fact, the need today is greater than ever.


As a parent of two children myself, I’ve seen firsthand how our students today have different needs and learn in different ways than in years past. 


Additional financial support is crucial to help stand in the gap between insufficient state funding and providing the educational excellence each of our students deserves.


As Benjamin Franklin once said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”


I promise you our students are worth it.
