From the community . . . to the schools . . . for the future.
OPEF Vision Statement
OPEF will inspire creativity and excellence in Oconomowoc public schools and make them a fountain of personal growth for the well-being of our local and global communities.
As a collaborative partner, the Oconomowoc Public Education Foundation will raise and provide funds for innovative educational opportunities and experiences not funded in the core school district budget. OPEF-supported projects will positively impact students and the community by:
fostering excellence, and
nurturing a sense of belonging through our public schools.
OPEF needs friends like you to help bring innovative and expansive teaching programs to our public schools. Our grants give educators in the district the opportunity to creatively enhance curriculum.
Due to circumstances our district and community are facing as a result of COVID-19, the OPEF Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 annual ball. We look forward to seeing everyone at our 2021 annual ball!
OPEF has given over $500,000 for classroom grants since 2007. We encourage risk-taking, pilot programs, and thinking outside the box! See what we've done so far . . .
