Strengthening our Community Through Learning
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.
