Believe For Me

Sometimes, a student doesn’t need you to believe in them as much as they need you to believe for them.

From Oklahoma’s Red River Valley Regions to the Gypsum Hills; the High Plains to the Ouachita Mountains, and everywhere in between, Oklahoma students in all 77 counties of the state are struggling like never before to overcome the vicissitudes of life. Brilliant, but burdened, math students may not really believe they can become engineers or scientists, so we will believe for them.

This is the legacy of the Oklahoma Engineering Foundation. In 1975, 12 engineers believed in the future of engineering education in Oklahoma. Together, they founded the Oklahoma Engineering Foundation and endowed an engineering scholarship for college students pursuing degrees in engineering. Today, that endowment has grown to nearly $220,000. Moreover, for decades, OEF has organized science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning experiences and adventures for Oklahoma students through our flagship programs, MATHCOUNTS Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Engineering Fair.

This year, we invite you to participate in our first annual campaign in recent memory, BELIEVE FOR ME. Thank you in advance for your tax -deductible donation.
