Educational Foundation

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

Make an online donation today or see Ways to Give for more information on giving options. For questions about the work of the Educational Foundation, visit the Contact Us page.

BUILDING LEADERS AND LEGACIES
The new Margaret Burke Lee Science and Health Careers Center offers a number of ways to honor family, friends, and members of Oakton’s community. Naming opportunities, which range in value from $5,000 to $200,000, provide a highly visible, timeless tribute while supporting Oakton and its students.           

2015 SCHOLARSHIP CAMPAIGN
The need has never been greater for scholarship support for our students who must take on the financial burden of increasing tuition costs or be forced out of higher education altogether. The 2015 Scholarship Campaign is underway in securing gifts for scholarships to be awarded for the 2015-2016 academic year.
