chevron's fuel your school programcelebrating 10 years of fueling up to fund projects for teachers, students and schools

The Fuel Your School program is celebrating 10 years of supporting K-12 public school teachers and students. This year, more than $5 million will be available to help fund classroom projects posted on DonorsChoose.org in 16 U.S. communities, with the help of local Chevron and Texaco marketers and retailers in some communities.

Andy Walz, president, America’s Products, said, “We’ve funded more than 40,000 teachers and delivered more than 61,000 classroom projects. The best part is knowing this program excites students and encourages them to learn, empowers teachers and makes our communities stronger.”

Preparing the next generation of problem solvers is essential to building a world where energy is affordable, reliable and ever-cleaner. Chevron’s Fuel Your School program supports education by enabling teachers to inspire their students for future careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

"Each funded project is putting much needed materials in the hands of our future. Without Chevron, we could not provide such valuable and educationally rich resources"

For the last decade, Fuel Your School funding has helped provide teachers with the tools they need to foster learning in the classroom, where students are first inspired and motivated to pursue their education.

Melissa Yefsky, a beneficiary from Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, explained, “My school community is so grateful for Chevron for providing students with these materials they would not have otherwise had. The iPads have been crucial for my 1st graders in so many ways – from differentiation to their fine motor skills. The families are grateful their students get these unique opportunities to learn.”

In 2014, the Fuel Your School program expanded to Canada. Through local partnerships, Chevron has supported Caltex Fuel Your School programs in Malaysia, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.
