Educational Foundation

The Educational Foundation proudly supports the mission and vision of Oakton Community College by raising funds in support of student scholarships, academic programs, teaching excellence, and capital improvements that enhance the quality of education at Oakton.

In this time of major divestment in public higher education, Oakton must rely on the philanthropy of community members to maintain its level of excellence. The generosity of Foundation donors helps assure Oakton’s ability to provide access to an exceptional education. Together, we can prepare diverse learners to meet and exceed the educational and professional needs of our dynamic society.
