The Oak Park Education Foundation (OPEF) is celebrating 25 years of providing hands-on programs to Oak Park public school children in grades K-8.

As we look back over the years, we are so grateful to all those who have helped make OPEF what it is today:

  • the professionals who share their knowledge and passion for learning with students;
  • the volunteers who work behind the scenes to raise funds, promote events and develop new programs;
  • the donors who enable creative learning in public schools; and
  • the students who are now giving back to their communities in innumerable ways.

Thanks to all those who support us, OPEF’s innovative, hands-on programming is free of charge, allowing us to reach every one of our public school children in elementary and middle school.

With your support, we look forward to another 25 years of inspiring a lifelong love of learning in our children!
