Ways to Give

Whether you are making a cash gift online, creating an endowed scholarship, or investing in the future of Oakton students with a planned gift, you can be assured that your generosity will help students achieve their educational dreams.

Online giving is the easiest and most efficient way of supporting Oakton students. When giving you may designate your gift to a variety of funds and scholarships.

Gifts of this type provide immediate funds to the Foundation for the purpose specified. Gifts should be made in U.S. currency and payable to the Oakton Community College Educational Foundation. If you wish to make a gift via wire transfer, please contact the Foundation Office. We accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. Please complete the downloadable credit card form. All checks and completed credit card forms should be mailed to:

Oakton Community College Educational Foundation
