Your Contribution

The Historical Society of Oak Park and River Forest is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that operates Oak Park River Forest Museum, which was renovated completely through private donations. We are not funded with any tax dollars, and our work relies on donations to run our Museum, Research Center, and public programs. We appreciate contributions at any level to our Annual Operating Fund. 

We have developed the following giving categories with special recognition opportunities. Join the new Philander Barclay Society with an annual donation of $1000 or more. And contact us to learn how you can set up automatic monthly or quarterly donations. Please send us a message on our website or call the OPRF Museum at (708) 848-6755 with questions. Donations may also be mailed to:
