We bring together leadership and funding to engage the community by coordinating local change efforts, engaging citizens, and bringing diverse voices and views together to address current and emerging needs. We strengthen our communities through collaboration and partnership with donors and others to ensure lasting impact and to improve the quality of life for perpetuity.
This report features stories of our communities coming together to address needs. Donors with similar passions have co-invested to support important programs and projects. Organizations have found new, meaningful ways to collaborate. And funders are taking risks and encouraging grantees to experiment with new approaches to solving long-standing challenges.
Education is a crucial part in strengthening our communities. The Oshkosh Area Community Foundation emphasizes education in numerous ways. The wonderful stories in this report are only a few of the many scholarships and education grants the foundation is part of. Much of our work in Oshkosh and all the communities in our service area is dedicated to education. Mentoring, apprenticeships, literacy programs, technology training, book distributions, teacher grants, capital projects, tuition assistance, employee advancement training, and scholarships are all areas that the Oshkosh Community Foundation supports year after year.
