Giving to Oakton

Welcome to the Oakton Community College Educational Foundation.

Established as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization in 1977, the Oakton Community College Educational Foundation has benefited thousands of students, faculty, and staff by supporting compelling College initiatives not met by public funds. From providing hundreds of scholarships to enhancing the learning and working environment with vital programs and equipment, the Foundation makes a significant difference in the quality of life at Oakton.

As dwindling public funding erodes support for student financial assistance, academic programs, and capital improvements, the College must rely on private resources to maintain its level of excellence. Join us by becoming a donor to the Oakton Community College Educational Foundation. With your help, the Foundation can continue to help Oakton provide an attainable, affordable, and exceptional education for every student.
