The Tulsa Community Foundation will announce a grant Friday morning that will match, dollar-for-dollar, donations up to $93,750 to assist Tulsa School of the Arts and Sciences.

A fire destroyed the charter school's building September 5th.

The school has since moved to the old Sequoyah Elementary school.

The foundation says the grant which was made possible through the generosity of an anonymous donor, will help the charter school with immediate operating expenses following that fire.

The goal of the matching challenge is $187,500, which the foundation says is the amount of money TSAS needs to help it recover from the fire and the move to another building.

The Tulsa Community Foundation's announcement will take place at Tulsa School of the Arts and Sciences at 724 North Birmingham Avenue.
