There is a growing need to support mental health in the greater Oshkosh area. Your investment supports programs that connect residents to health and human services, provide crisis intervention, and promote social connectivity.

As a funder of OAUW, you bolster efforts to create stable, self-sufficient households by supporting programs that improve skills to gain employment, reduce transportation barriers, and provide basic needs like food, clothing, and shelter.

Expanding and providing access to high-quality childcare and education is one of the smartest investments we can make. With your support, OAUW funds programs that provide parents and children with tools to improve childhood development and career readiness.
