Alumni Giving

Central to everything the Office of Alumni Relations undertakes are three strategic priorities: fostering student success, making an impact in the lives of alumni, and positioning the college for future success. By making a gift to Oakton, you allow us to continue enhancing the educational opportunities for future generations of alumni.

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:

  • Annual Fund
    The Oakton Annual Fund is a consistent source of unrestricted funding for the key priorities that realize the college’s mission and it impacts every aspect of the Oakton experience.
  • Alumni Association Scholarships
    Created by Oakton’s Alumni Association, this scholarship supports full- or part-time students with a strong academic background and a proven track record of providing exceptional service to the community.
  • Emerging Leaders Program Endowment
    Created by Oakton alumna and Trustee Theresa Bashiri-Remetio, this fund will provide perpetual funding for the Emerging Leaders Program and support Oakton’s aspiring leaders.

For a complete list of scholarships, including those for Oakton graduates, please visit the Educational Foundation Scholarships Web page.
