Educational Foundation

Enabling student success

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

Responding in times of crisis

To remove barriers caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Oakton Educational Foundation authorized a $50,000 emergency grant to underwrite the purchase of Chromebooks for students who do not have a computer and cannot access the College’s computer labs or local libraries. But the need is great and we’re asking for your support.
