"Making real change requires real community engagement, and it
needs to be built by connecting with the people first." 

— Austin resident & organizer

We invite you to attend one of our upcoming events where we will be sharing our community needs assessment, which reveals the most pressing needs in our area, what the data tells us, and how the power of our community will guide our future to a racially just society.

The Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation has supported our area’s progress and growth for decades by providing funding to nonprofit organizations and initiatives that serve our communities, and strengthening the nonprofit sector's impact through a series of capacity building programs. Our giving groups and programs provide a means of pooling members' resources to make a greater impact together.

Education is one of the most important investments we can make in our future. The Foundation offers students opportunities for college scholarships, as well as educational enrichment grants and professional development grants for students of all ages.
