We love providing hope through My Best Me all over the country, but we can’t forget our home in Oklahoma. So, to help improve educational opportunities for public schools in our home state, we want to tell you about the Forming Lives OK EIGO and how you can help.
Invest in Our Schools
You are directly investing in Oklahoma public schools to help them create a superior learning environment for their students by donating. With more resources, teachers can help students achieve higher academic performance and gain better educational outcomes. OK EIGO’s board of directors genuinely care for the young people of OK. Each of them is known for being community leaders who provide college and career readiness opportunities for graduating seniors, as well as mentoring young OK business owners. With your donation, you help them impact the lives of 694,116 students in the state across the 1,700 schools they contribute towards. They ensure your money goes directly to where it will benefit most.
If you’re familiar with My Best Me and our dedication to spreading Hope, you know how impactful mental health and overall well-being are to our students and classrooms. By donating to OK EIGO, you spread Hope. The OK EIGO program allows the My Best Me curriculum to enter more central and rural public schools in Oklahoma and bring crucial social-emotional learning skills to students and teachers. This improves the quality of life for students, significantly enhancing their educational outcomes and improving their post-graduation opportunities.
Earn Tax Credit
Your donation gives Oklahoma residents tax credit in the state of Oklahoma. Whether a business, an individual, or a couple, Oklahoma residents can earn income tax credit to reduce their overall taxes through a donation. Individuals can earn up to $2,000 in tax credit, and businesses can earn up to $100,000. In addition, OK EIGO offers one-time donations and a yearly commitment option. Finally, as a nonprofit organization, a contribution to OK EIGO qualifies with the Internal Revenue Service as a charitable tax deduction.
We are thrilled to have an organization like OK EIGO help us spread hope in Oklahoma and are thankful for all those who donate. In January 2022, a new state statute will be in place, allowing more flexibility to which schools can receive funding so that OK EIGO can give more than ever before.
