Since 1891, our organization has focused on promoting learning and giving. Supporting our 21st century community, we encourage social responsibility by providing charitable service, financial support to community not-for-profit organizations and college scholarships to Oak Park-River Forest high school graduates. We promote life-long learning through dynamic, multi-cultural programs featuring music, art, literature, science and the social sciences. Part of our mission is to make our facility and services available to other non-profits so they can also better serve the community.
The charitable works of our organization are carried out by a community of volunteers who offer their time and talents to plan, organize and deliver results. Membership in this group of enthusiastic, dedicated, hard-working and fun-loving people is open to all interested individuals who share goals with the charitable purpose of the organization.
Help us celebrate our 125th Anniversary in 2016!
