Believe in Kelley

We are grateful to to the parents and guardians who have already made gifts to Believe in Kelley. While we have crossed the $300,000 mark, we’re still far short of our goal of $500,000. Gifts to Believe in Kelley go beyond what tuition provides, making it possible to improve our facilities, purchase state-of-the-art equipment, recruit/retain outstanding faculty, provide tuition assistance and so much more!

 

We need the full support of our parents and guardians to reach our goal. Whether you can afford a gift of $10, $10,000 or any amount in-between, your gift will make a difference! You can support Believe in Kelley through an online gift or send a check to the Philanthropy Office, 3905 S. Hudson Ave, Tulsa, OK 74135-5699.
