Chevron has invested over $43 million since 2010 (through 2017) in education partnerships and programs in the United States. They wanted to increase their emphasis in education specifically in Utah – Salt Lake, Davis and Utah Counties.
Enlisting educators, state leaders, local leaders, media, bloggers, and a variety of education foundations and organizations, since 2010 Chevron has relied upon Byron Russell LLC to launch and promote to the Utah Market the Fuel Your School initiative and has successfully funded over $4,250,000 in posted DonorsChoose.org classroom projects through 2017 in Salt Lake, Davis and Utah Counties.
Fuel Your School has not only made a great impact in classrooms, but has engaged educators and leaders alike to support and promote the program. Former Governor Jon Huntsman, Governor Gary Herbert and Lt. Governor Spencer Cox have all taken the Fuel Your School messages to multiple classrooms, increasing Chevron’s outreach and commitment to education in Utah. Other key influencers and collaborators have included the Utah Symphony and Opera, Real Salt Lake, RSL Foundation, and the Utah Royals FC.
