Fifteen non-profits that serve residents of Oak Park and River Forest were awarded grants totaling $55,900 at the Community Foundation’s annual Grants Breakfast at 8 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 28, at the Oak Park Country Club.

The funded organizations touch lives throughout the community by addressing urgent human needs, promoting physical and emotional well being, improving educational and recreational opportunities, and supporting the cultural resources of the villages. The Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation provides grants and scholarships each year “to strengthen our community through philanthropy.”
