As a founding partner of the Fuel Your School program, Chevron has generously committed to make a charitable donation of up to $1 million to help fund classroom projects in select counties in California for the new Fuel Your School program.Running September 1 through September 30, 2010, Fuel Your School will donate $1 to fund classroom projects every time consumers purchase 8 gallons of fuel or more at any of the participating local Chevron stations in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. Up to $1 million in funding will be provided toward classroom projects thanks to Chevron’s generosity and interest in furthering education. Teachers at approximately 640 participating schools in Alameda and Contra Costa counties can prepare by registering with DonorsChoose.org. Doing so will provide teachers with the opportunity to make them among the first to view the project-eligibility criteria when it is released.DonorsChoose.org and Chevron are working together to determine the specifics of eligibility, so teachers interested in this offer should not submit projects until the details are announced. Teachers, here’s how to get the details as soon as they become available:
- If you are not yet a registered teacher on DonorsChoose.org, go ahead and sign up; details will be announced in the teacher newsletter.
- Like us on Facebook, where updates will be posted.
Remember that if you submit a project in advance of the program dates, it may not be eligible for funding. Check out the program website at www.fuelyourschool.com to learn more.
