Oshkosh Area Community Foundation



The Oshkosh Area Community Foundation is a non-profit organization created by and for the people of Winnebago County, Waushara County, Green Lake County and Ripon. Through our 585 charitable funds, we distribute grants to support projects that make our communities better places to live. In 2008, we awarded $6.9 million to non-profit organizations supporting everything from arts and culture to poverty and basic needs.
