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.

OPEF Mission

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:

  • encouraging leadership

  • 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.
 

SAVE THE DATE!

We will be celebrating our 15 Year Anniversary on Thursday, July 14 at the Oconomowoc Arts Center where our vision to enhance learning opportunities for students and staff began. 

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 . . .
