Did you know that 85% of our total funds raised so far were gifted by our generous donors who have given or committed to giving $1,000+ for the 2018-2019 school year?
On Saturday, February 2, the OPEF board hosted our inaugural Distinguished Donors Appreciation event to thank and celebrate the families, education professionals, and community members who have given largely to fund our children’s futures! Those in attendance included our OPUSD board members, our school principals, Superintendent Dr. Tony Knight, and several of our distinguished donors – all of whom we extend our sincerest gratitude for joining us to celebrate their significant and impactful contributions.
A special thank you to Ashwani & Warija Bhardwaj for graciously opening up their beautiful home to host this event, as well as to Michael & Jenny Murphy for kindly donating the wine for the evening.
“Education is the principal agent for change for the next generations to shape a better future. An educated society will make good decisions and do the most to change income inequality. An investment in the Oak Park Education Foundation offers more than ten times the output in results. In fact, it is priceless!”
