To all who have contributed to the Foundation and who share our mission to strengthen our communities, we say: Thank you.

Without your support, none of the impact and progress illustrated in this report would be possible. Together, we are making a difference!

It's scenes like the young skaters on Miller's Bay on the cover of this report that feed our optimism that our vision for the greater Oshkosh area is attainable as a place where we can all thrive. In 2016, nearly $5 million was invested in the programs, projects and organizations that are advancing our quality of life.

We report to you with confidence that your investments in the Foundation are yielding results! The Foundation is helping organizations grow and become stronger. Sometimes it's a grant that is needed; other times
it's skills to grow the organization or coaching to build sustainable funding resources.

As a community foundation, we serve the needs of the greater Oshkosh area today and tomorrow. Though we cannot know what the needs will be 50 years from now, we can equip our communities with a growing endowment to ensure we have the resources necessary to meet those needs. We can make the best possible charitable investments today toward a vision of that future Oshkosh: a region with a growing economy, where all have the opportunity to thrive.

We invite you to join us.

Bill Wyman President and CEO
