Our operations are funded entirely by donations; without your contributions, our websites would not be maintained, our newsletters would not be produced, and we could not provide support to class reunion groups.
Furthermore, needy OPRFHS students would not have an important source of financial assistance to help them participate in summer academic enrichment programs. For the summer of 2011, we have allocated over $13,000 for these grants.
Many thanks to all the individuals who support our work by making membership donation, both new and renewing members. We sincerely appreciate your support.

Matching Grant Challenge!
Now you can DOUBLE the value of your donation. Thanks to the generosity of an OPRFHS alum who wishes to remain anonymous, we have a wonderful opportunity to ensure our funding for the future. Our goal is to raise $200,000 to create an endowment by June 2015 - and the donor will MATCH whatever we raise up to that limit. Make your tax-deductible donation HERE.
A kick-off for the Challenge Campaign on November 2, hosted by Mary Jo (Hall) Schuler and her husband Stephen Schuler (both '80), brought over 100 alumni and other friends to their beautiful Victorian home in Oak Park. The elegant event included appetizers and a buffet provided by Marion Street Cheese Market. The donation total was over $45,000 - matched dollar for dollar by our anonymous donor!

Alumni Homecoming 2011
For Homecoming in 2011 the Alumni Association held an ALUMNI LUNCH on Saturday, Sept 24 prior to the Homecoming Football game. Inclement weather kept us indoors for the most part, but the warmth and comraderie compensated for the lack of sunshine outside! We were thrilled to welcome so many members of the reunion classes - 1961, '66, '71, '81, '86, '91 and 2001 as well as various other alumni.
We appreciate the support of these Alumni Lunch sponsors:
