Community Foundation for Oak Park



The incorporation of the Community Foundation was supported by volunteers and a grant from the Oak Park Civic Association, which directed that the Foundation give special emphasis to the youth of the community. When the Civic Association dissolved a few years later, its remaining funds were donated to the Foundation, which created a Civic Association Fund to further the public purposes of that organization.
