Article excerpt

Bank of Oklahoma will contribute $10 to schools for each new consumer and business checking account opened at any branch statewide during the month of March.

The bank will donate a minimum of $25,000 as part of its "Support Our Schools" campaign aimed at aiding education. The total gift could be much higher than the minimum, depending on the number of new accounts opened. Customers will incur no charges related to the contributions and have the option of designating which Oklahoma school districts get the $10 donation.

"Supporting education is a priority for Bank of Oklahoma and is essential to the future of our state," said Mark Funke, the bank's Oklahoma City president. "This is another way to help support our school districts and build a stronger learning environment. We wanted to do our part to help our community during the current economic slowdown, and this is a great way for Oklahomans to lend a hand."

The Support Our Schools campaign serves as a reminder that Oklahoma schools will continue to need critical financial help, said Executive Vice President Steve Bradshaw, head of the bank's consumer division systemwide.

"Our schools need more funds to maintain their essential mission of shaping our children, our communities and our companies," Bradshaw said. "We hope our gesture continues to inspire other citizens, companies and organizations to step up and help make a difference during this crucial time for our school districts."
