Community Foundation reports growth - October 4 2010

OSHKOSH, WI ? The Oshkosh Area Community Foundation announced last week that its assets rose 9.8 percent to $63.9 million in the fiscal year ending June 30, 2010, from $58.2 million in 2009.

"It's really amazing to think of the projects that have happened because of our donors and community partnerships," said Eileen Connolly-Keesler, the Community Foundation's president and chief executive officer. "We have them to thank for changing our community and making a lasting impact on the quality of life here."

In the last fiscal year, the Foundation received 4,700 contributions totaling $3.8 million and awarded 849 grants totaling nearly $3 million in support of a variety of local needs.

The financial results were released to donors Thursday at the Foundation's annual Donor Appreciation event held at the Grand Opera House.

The Foundation also awarded three community partners at the event: Oshkosh Visioning Partners, the John E. Kuenzl Foundation and the Jeffrey W. Glassheim Family Fund.

As winners of the Partner in Philanthropy Award, which are presented to community partners who demonstrate an outstanding philanthropic spirit and transform our community, each recipient will have a flower bed planted and marked with an engraved stone in their honor.
