Ways to Give

Whether you are making a 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 Donations
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 using a credit card or ETF. Gifts can also be designated to recur on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis and can be made as a tribute to an individual or organization. We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover through our secure processing system.

By Phone
If you would like to make a gift by credit card and prefer to call in your number, the Foundation team would be happy to assist you at 847.635.1893. 

Gifts by Check
To mail in a check, download and complete the Donation Form and mail to the Oakton Educational Foundation at 1600 East Golf Road, Des Plaines, IL 60016. Checks should be payable to the Oakton Community College Educational Foundation.
