The OEF relies on the generosity of its donors to fulfill its mission of "Recognizing Excellence and Supporting Innovation in Okemos Public Schools." Please consider making a financial contribution and become an OEF 'Partner in Education.'
Help the OEF recognize excellence in our schools by participating in one of the foundation's two awards programs:
Annual OEF Awards Join us in November as we bestow the annual OEF awards for excellence on educators, support staff, community volunteers, and alumni. Learn about the 2017 OEF Awards Banquet
Order an APPLE Award You can honor an Okemos staff member for a job well done by sending an OEF APPLE Award. Send one today!
It takes many hands and various skills to keep the all-volunteer OEF functioning. Do you have time to help? Please contact Board Chair Martha Hentz if you are able to lend your time and talents.
Join the OEF Board of Trustees and help steer the foundation to a strong future of supporting Okemos students and staff.
