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.
