What We Do
OUPSF was originally known as Orange Education Fund (OEF) in 1995, its founding year. Members raised $50,000 to $75,000 annually to fund a wide range of supplies and materials for children, such as playground benches and library bookcases.
Throughout the years, the organization became less active while the need for funds remained. OEF was later renamed OUPSF after the steering committee revived the concept and relaunched the foundation to serve students, educators, and schools in the present.
Teacher and Classroom Grants
Building off of our rich history of funding grants, we recognize that educators are our ultimate changemakers, and we want to partner with them as they invest in our children’s growth.
In a significant milestone achieved during our inaugural year, we are delighted to announce the successful distribution of our first round of grants for 2023!
A total of $44,050 has been awarded across 27 schools, benefiting 57 teachers and staff members. In the near future, these grants will positively impact over 18,000 students, while also benefiting countless others in the long run.
