Chevron Expands Fuel Your School Program To Help Fund Classroom Projects

Stocks in this article: CVX

Chevron U.S.A. Inc. (NYSE:CVX) today announced the launch and expansion of the 2014 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 2014, the Fuel Your School Program will generate up to $8.6 million in classroom supply funding for educators in 22 U.S. communities in 14 states where Chevron operates, with the help of local Chevron and Texaco marketers in 6 markets.

Beginning Sept. 1, 2014, public school teachers from participating communities are invited to post eligible classroom projects at www.DonorsChoose.org. From Oct. 1 through Oct. 31, 2014, the Fuel Your School program will donate $1 to help fund eligible classroom projects when consumers purchase eight or more gallons of fuel at participating Chevron or Texaco stations, up to a total of $8.6 million.

“Education is a building block to promote economic development and bright futures for young people,” said Dale Walsh, president of Chevron Americas Products. “Chevron is proud to expand this successful program to continue to strengthen educational opportunities in the communities where we operate.”

Since its 2010 inception, Fuel Your School has helped fund more than 17,000 classroom projects at 3,200 K-12 public schools as project funding has increased annually from up to $1 million in 2010 to up to $8.6 million for the 2014 program. The majority of project requests and funding to date have helped support science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.

“We’re excited to expand our collaboration with Chevron and help provide our nation’s teachers and students with the classroom supplies needed to help foster an innovative and dynamic learning environment,” said Charles Best, founder and CEO of DonorsChoose.org. “The Fuel Your School program makes it easy for educators, parents, community members and businesses to work together to provide students with the classroom supplies they need to facilitate hands-on learning opportunities.”
