The ity Foundation understands our community's most pressing issues and can help you establish a fund to make an impact in areas of need or opportunity that are important to you. Here are three great ways to turn your IRA into community good:
Community Impact Fund - Meeting ever-changing community needs. Address a broad range of current and future needs. The Oshkosh Area Community Foundation evaluates all aspects of community well-being - arts and culture, community development, education, environment, health and human services -and awards strategic grants to high-impact projects and programs.
Field of Interest Fund - Connecting personal values to high-impact opportunities. Target gifts to the cause most important to you: arts, education, neighborhood revitalization, youth welfare and more. The Oshkosh Area Community Foundation awards grants to community organizations and programs addressing your special interest area.
Designated Fund - Helping local organizations sustain and grow. Support the good work of a specific nonprofit organization - a senior center, museum or any qualifying nonprofit charitable organization - by creating a specially Designated Fund. The foundation will invest your gift for long-term growth and issue grants to your favorite nonprofit on a regular basis.
