Chevron’s 2013 Fuel Your School Program Expands To Help Fund Classroom Projects In 14 U.S. Communities

Chevron U.S.A. Inc. (NYSE: CVX) announced the expansion of its Fuel Your School program to 14 U.S. communities this fall from nine communities in 2012. Designed to support education for local public schools based on the specific requests of each classroom, Fuel Your School will help meet the critical need for classroom funding in various communities where Chevron operates.

Last year, Chevron funded $4.49 million worth of classroom projects in nine U.S. markets. This year, from Oct. 1 through Oct. 31, 2013, Chevron will contribute $1 to help fund eligible classroom projects when consumers purchase eight or more gallons of fuel at participating Chevron and Texaco stations in the participating U.S. communities, up to a total contribution of nearly $7.1 million.

“Effective education in the STEM subjects—science, technology, engineering and math—can help prepare bright young students to be the engineers, geologists and doctors of the future, driving innovation and economic growth,” said Dale Walsh, president of Chevron Americas Products. “Fuel Your School provides teachers with essential tools and resources, including hands-on project materials that often do not receive funding from traditional sources. These resources are critical to spurring students’ interest in and understanding of the STEM subjects.”

In the U.S., Fuel Your School is an innovative collaboration between Chevron and DonorsChoose.org, an online organization dedicated to helping students in need. The program was driven by the lack of adequate school funding, which has left some teachers without basic supplies to help students complete their classroom assignments. Since its inception in 2010, Fuel Your School has helped fund 8,915 classroom projects at 1,924 schools. The program has grown each year to support students in various communities where Chevron has business operations and has reached 899,180 students.

“Last year, the average public school teacher spent approximately $485 of their own money on school supplies, instructional materials and other classroom materials needed for student learning,” said Charles Best, CEO of DonorsChoose.org. “By using our website, combined with Chevron’s community relationships and retail network, we can expand the Fuel Your School program to support more schools, empower more teachers and improve more students’ education.”
