The Professional Oklahoma Educators Foundation was founded in 1998 by Ginger and Mike Tinney. The Foundation serves as a support organization for POE and provides valuable educational training and services to teachers and students across the state. The POE Foundation is dedicated to promoting a world-class education for all Oklahoma students. The Foundation launched a fundraising campaign called Heart Times to allow teachers and businesses to help teachers.
The POE Foundation currently hosts many events, including the annual Leadership Training Conference, Excellence in Education Merit & Character Awards Banquet and a variety of professional learning workshops and seminars. Read more about the Excellence in Education 2021 Finalists.
Each year the Foundation’s many charitable activities and events make a positive difference in the lives of Oklahoma educators and students. The POE Foundation relies on donations to support these efforts. Thank you for making a tax-deductible donation today.
