Formerly known as the Partnership for the Availability of School Supplies (PASS), SUPPLIED for SUCCESS provides school supplies for students at Tulsa’s highest poverty elementary schools. The program aims to ensure that economic inequality does not lead to an inequality of opportunity for students in the classroom. The program, administered by Tulsa Community Foundation (TCF), provides supplies to over 26,000 students at 49 elementary schools in Tulsa and Union school districts. In each school assisted, more than 75% of students qualify for the Free or Reduced-Price Lunch program. Supplies are provided directly to school sites and distributed by each building.

 

All students in SUPPLIED for SUCCESS-eligible schools qualify for the year's worth of free school supplies. At each SUPPLIED for SUCCESS school site, all students are provided with supplies, regardless of individual family income. According to Karen Vance, principal at Rosa Parks Elementary School, “Having to purchase school supplies can mean the difference between buying groceries and paying bills for many of our families. What a relief it is to know children will come to school and have all the supplies they need.”

 

SUPPLIED for SUCCESS is the community-recognized provider of school supplies, originally founded by Community Action Project and the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation. In 5 years, over 300,000 sets of supplies, including crayons, pencils, markers, folders, rulers, spiral notebooks and scissors have been distributed to the neediest children in Tulsa. This vital program removes the worry from school personnel of how to get supplies for students. It removes the dread of a child having to take home a list of supplies they know their parents can’t afford to buy and the embarrassment of coming to class empty handed.
