Overview

As the population of older adults in our community grows, additional resources will be required to support their specialized needs. Grants from the Ladies Benevolent Society: Advocates for Older Adults Fund, a field of interest fund of the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation, are targeted to help nonprofit organizations provide services to benefit the elderly in the greater Oshkosh area. Eligible proposals will:

  • Serve adults age 55 or older in the Oshkosh area
  • Help adults in economic need
  • Improve the health and well-being of older adults in our community

Funding from the Community Foundation will not typically support staffing expenses (i.e., salary or benefits).
