Since 1989, the purpose of the Oldham County Educational Foundation (OCEF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is to foster community, parent, and business support for the students, teachers and parents of Oldham County Schools. OCEF’s mission is to raise funds to elevate the public education experience for Oldham County Schools students. OCEF works to increase awareness of its mission through marketing efforts to parents, community and businesses while raising funds and providing grants that support ongoing and new, educational initiatives and programs. By working closely with the Superintendent of Oldham County Schools and others, the needs of the school district and OCEF’s fundraising focus areas are defined each year. Oldham County Educational Foundation’s investment in students, teachers and parents has resulted in programs that are truly empowering – creating environments that set Oldham County schools apart. Because of the income level of our county, we are one of the lowest funded districts in the state, therefore it is difficult for Oldham County Schools to fund some special programs beneficial to our students. OCEF provides additional revenues to support initiatives that otherwise might not be funded. Our generous donors and partners have also invested in our mission and help us provide the funding necessary to accomplish great things for students in Oldham County.

OCEF’s Key Funding Priorities:

  • Innovative instruction like the annual Pyramid Awards for teachers
  • STEM initiatives (Science, technology, engineering, and math)
  • Arts education
  • Early childhood education
  • Gifted and Talented Services (GATES)


Students are our most valuable asset. Our investment in education and our children strengthens our community, our businesses, and our families.

Give today because they are our future.
