Oxford Educational Foundation (OEF) President Jim McLeod accepts a check for $10,000 from OEF Executive Director Dr. Raymond Fischer and his wife, Nancy, to kick off the OEF's new Leaving a Legacy Program. The program offers a variety of planned giving options to those who wish to continue their support of the foundation's mission in perpetuity.

On Sept. 13, the Oxford Educational Foundation (OEF) celebrated its 20th anniversary with a community luncheon at Penn's Grove Middle School. Highlights of the event included citations from Chester County Commissioner Terence Farrell and State Sen. Andrew Dinniman, the introduction of the OEF's new Leaving a Legacy Program and the announcement of the OEF's first emeritus members of the Board of Directors.

OEF is a community organization whose purpose is to enhance the quality of education for students attending schools in the Oxford Area School District. This includes providing funding for professional grants that cover things outside the school district budget. In the last 13 years, more than $128,000 in materials and training have been awarded to district teachers and administrators.
