AT&T Aspire flash funds area school projects

FORT SILL, Okla._Teachers and students in the Fort Sill area have something to celebrate as AT&T revealed it “flash funded” projects listed by teachers on the education crowd-funding site DonorsChoose.org.

In total, more than 35 projects were fulfilled, benefiting nearly 4,000 area students. Classroom projects ranged from new tools to develop literacy and comprehension skills to iPads for STEM lessons. 

“As part of our support of our nation’s men and women of the military, this is one way we can say thank you to those who serve and their families,” said Steve Hahn, president of AT&T Oklahoma. “We are thrilled to support these students as part of our ongoing commitment to education through AT&T Aspire and to military communities. We honor those who serve on Veterans Day and all year long.” 

The flash funding in the Fort Sill area is one of the several done across the United States in military communities. All told, AT&T is fulfilling nearly 800 projects in more than 680 classrooms, benefiting more than 83,500 students with a total gift of more than $532,000. 

AT&T Aspire is the company's signature education initiative that invests in students today – at home, in the classroom, at work – to prepare them for success tomorrow. AT&T previously supported several DonorsChoose.org initiatives as part of AT&T Aspire, the company’s $350 million planned commitment to education.

AT&T is honored to serve those who serve. In 2013, AT&T announced that it is stepping up its veteran recruiting efforts with the goal of hiring 10,000 veterans over the next 5 years. Since making that commitment, AT&T hired more than 9,500 veterans and is well on the way to surpassing that goal.
