Tuesday, November 27 marks "#GivingTuesday", the 6th annual globlal giving movement that kicks off the Holidays and Charitable Giving season!  During this time of reflection and giving back, we hope you will consider a year-end donation to OEF!

Your donation will fund both the OEF Endowment, as well as a diverse array of grants from teachers, principals and administrators.  And starting for the first time this year, OEF's impact will expand to fund grants for students as well! 

With your help, we will positively impact over 200 teachers and 2,300 students this year! Right now, we are considering grant requests totaling over $100,000 in urgent classroom needs that we cannot fund without your support including a:

  • $50,000 investment in technology upgrades,

  • $20,000 investment for added Mental Health Counseling and Emotional Skills resources for students across the District,

  • $17,000 investment in Art for a Maker’s Space at Matilija JHS and Ceramic Equipment at Nordhoff HS.

  • $7,000 investment in GATE Certification for all 3rd, 4th & 5th Grade Teachers across the District, and a

  • $6,000 investment in online, interactive Math curriculum for 500 Middle School Students at Matilija and more!

And with this year marking our 25th anniversary, we hope you will consider a $250 or $2500 donation! Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to continuing our legacy of enriching lives through public education in the Ojai Valley for the next 25 years and beyond!
