OPEF Celebrating 15 Years in 2022
The Oconomowoc Public Education Foundation (OPEF) was established in 2007 as a means to allow education-minded citizens to support the Oconomowoc area public schools through private, tax-deductible contributions.

Our students and our future rely on the generosity of Oconomowoc area community members and businesses. Since 2007, OPEF has given over $500,000 for classroom grants. OPEF is dedicated to encouraging leadership, fostering excellence, and nurturing community in the Oconomowoc public schools.

We are excited for our upcoming 15th Anniversary in 2022 and look forward to celebrating with all of you and sharing our plans for the future! Please make sure to check future newsletters, the OPEF website and our Facebook page for upcoming events and information.

President's Message
Over the past 15 years we have been fortunate to have had the support of countless volunteers who have dedicated their time, talent and treasure to help us carry out our mission. Without the tireless efforts of our volunteers, OPEF would not be the organization it is today. Because of these efforts, OPEF was able to raise $500,000 for the Performing Arts Center Enhancement Fund to provide state of the art enhancements to the Oconomowoc Arts Center, in addition to over $500,000 in classroom grants directly impacting OASD students. We are beyond grateful to all the volunteers and donors who have helped make this happen over the years.

The Oconomowoc Public Education Foundation remains committed to working in partnership with the OASD and others to raise and provide funds for innovational programs and projects that benefit all students. We, like many other non-profits, experienced significant losses in our revenue flow due to the pandemic. However, our volunteer Board of Directors remains steadfast in their roles and will continue to work hard to carry out our mission. We are always looking for volunteers to help support our efforts. Please contact me HERE to learn how you can help. I look forward to hearing from you!

Please consider making a donation to OPEF to help continue our legacy.
