Friends of Oakridge
10 year Partnership with Los Angeles City Department of Recreation and Parks
donate to complete
The Oakridge Estate
Rear Yard Restoration
In collaboration with the Los Angeles City Department of Recreation and Parks, Friends of Oakridge looks forward to offering tours and events when deemed safe. During this extended hiatus, we are exploring preservation and programming. Our first 10 years' accomplishments include providing docent led tours for 4,300 visitors, helping to locate funding for a badly needed roof, driveway and 32 additional parking spaces, and, with your help, funding front yard irrigation and landscaping.
Last year, your generous donations enabled Friends to plant 7 impressive oaks in the rear yard, replacing trees planted by Barbara Stanwyck in 1937, then lost by disease and drought.
Many of you have enjoyed our interior tours and film events.
Please help Friends celebrate our first 10 years with a simple “Birthday Gift”. Your tax-deductible contribution of $10 to mark each year, or $20 or more, will help us complete the rear yard landscaping in preparation for outdoor events.
Friends of Oakridge is a 501 c (3) charitable organization, EIN #45-1626582. All donations are deemed tax deductible absent any limitations on deductibility applicable to a particular taxpayer. No goods or services were provided for your contribution.
A VERY Special Oakridge Holiday Event
In 2014, 225 people gathered with Victoria Wilson and Foster Hirsch to celebrate the publication of Ms. Wilson's Stanwyck biography, A Life of Barbara Stanwyck: Steel-True 1907-1940. For much of the book, Stanwyck was living at her Marwyck Ranch, now The Oakridge Estate.
