Public Service Company of Oklahoma

Dear Friends,

PSO partners with those we serve to enrich our communities and our state. For more than a century, we’ve provided Oklahomans with reliable electric service at competitive prices. We’re committed to enhancing our state’s social and economic well-being through community involvement, volunteerism and by supporting economic development. In 2018, PSO and the American Electric Power Foundation donated nearly $1.7 million in the areas we serve to education and nonprofit partners, including support for agencies providing food and housing for those in need.

At PSO, we recognize a successful future requires access to high-quality education. As part of our commitment to help educate and inspire Oklahoma students, PSO contributes to the school districts we serve as well as educational initiatives. The team at PSO generously donates their time and talents to help students succeed.

PSO and the AEP Foundation are strong supporters of Science-Technology-Engineering and Math (STEM) education for students across our service areas. Credits CountSM, in partnership with Tulsa Community College, provides resources for Tulsa Public Schools students to explore and pursue STEM fields and careers. Credits Count benefited 19,000 students in 2018. Student leadership and STEM education are also the focus for our donations to Oklahoma FFA and our corporate robotics grants. Our Teacher Vision grants reward innovative classroom teacher initiatives.

In our headquarters city of Tulsa, PSO has partnered with Tulsa Public Schools for decades as a Partner in Education to provide leadership, volunteerism and resources. Our three formal partnerships span from preschool to high school; including partnerships with Bunche Early Childhood Development Center, Wayman Tisdale Fine Arts Academy, and Central Junior-Senior High School. Whether our volunteers are reading to preschoolers, filling backpacks with school supplies, tutoring in reading and math or assisting high school students with applying for college funding, we’re all dedicated to helping ensure a bright future for students.

We recognize the value of a diverse and inclusive environment. For the sixth consecutive year, PSO was recognized by the Tulsa Regional Chamber’s Mosaic initiative as an outstanding employer for our workforce diversity and inclusion achievements.

The more than 1,600 Oklahomans working for PSO customers believe in the power of community and are committed to making a positive difference in the areas where we live and work. This report provides further detail on how we deliver on that commitment. It includes information on the nonprofit organizations, schools, programs and community events we supported financially in 2018.

We’re honored to call Oklahoma home and we’re honored to serve you!

Peggy Simmons
President and Chief Operating Officer
