Marc Dosogne (pictured center) has been involved with the Boys & Girls Club organization for over 30 years, most recently as the Chief Executive Officer of the Oshkosh Club. This year, the Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and Marc is preparing for retirement in December. He hopes that the Club continues to excel in teaching youth the skills they need to succeed in life after his departure.
“During my years at the Oshkosh Club, I’ve had many favorite moments. When we opened new buildings, the remodeling of Camp Radford and helping establish the Boys & Girls Club of the Tri-County Area. These key moments represent the future and the next generation of kids who will use these services and buildings. It also means the community believes in us and our programs,” says Dosogne.
Marc’s leadership inspired a generous anonymous donor to give $1 million to establish the Dosogne Boys and Girls Club Maintenance Fund within the Community Foundation in his honor.
“This gift means so much – it means we are doing our job; our donors believe in our mission and they trust us. It represents relationship building and connecting our donors to that mission. This donor understood they were fixing an issue and wanting to ensure we could keep up with facility repairs and equipment replacements. This fund allows our staff to not have to worry about fixing issues in the center, they can focus on their jobs and the kids. I am personally honored a donor would trust us with that amount of money, and I am humbled this donor established the fund in my name. The fund should list all my wonderful employees as they are the ones out there with the kids,” says Dosogne.
