Philanthropy is the single revenue source for which we have total control and is essential to the success of our District.

Oak Park’s high standard of living results in our schools receiving among some of the lowest in state funding  per pupil in California – 853rd out of 946 school districts.

While state funding pays for the basics, it does not pay for programs that ensure educational excellence and give our students the most competitive edge in a future job market and in life.

OPEF is asking you to consider a meaningful gift this school year to fund a stronger complement, between technology needs, virtual enrichment programs for elementary schools, and the part time college & career counselor for the high school. Your donation will go a long way to support your child and all the students in the Oak Park Unified School District.

Please consider a gift to the Oak Park Education Foundation at one of these levels:

  • $5,000 – Elite
  • $2,500  – Champion
  • $1,000  – Leader ($1,000 Leadership Donor)
  • $500 – Partner
  • $365 – Supporter ($1 a day)
  • $100 – Advocate

OPEF is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation set up to handle philanthropic giving to the district.  It is led by a board of Oak Park parents and alumni, and all gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible.

To avoid credit card fees, you may mail your donation to: Oak Park Education Foundation, 638 Lindero Canyon Road #126, Oak Park, CA 91377.  Please write your check payable to Oak Park Education Foundation.

All donors will be recognized in our Annual Report to proudly display their support and encourage others to contribute.
