Single moms needed for Women’s Fund grant project

OSHKOSH, WI – Single moms will get the chance to do something extraordinary in December. They will give away $10,000 to a local nonprofit to benefit other women just like themselves.

The Women’s Fund of the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation is calling on single moms from the Oshkosh area to participate in its Power of 10 focus group. The Power of 10 is the Women’s Fund’s 10th anniversary initiative designed to identify the issues and obstacles facing women of all ages in our community.

The group will meet to discuss, debate and decide how to allocate $10,000 to help single moms in the community. Participants will not only meet other women just like them, but also have the opportunity to express their needs, discuss the challenges they face and finally, feel empowered as a philanthropist in their selection of the grant recipient.

Women from all facets of the community are encouraged to join this Power of 10 focus group.

The group will meet at 5:15 p.m. Dec. 1, Dec. 8 and Dec. 15, at the 20th Ave YMCA, 3303 W. 20th Ave., Oshkosh. Each meeting lasts about 90 minutes. Drop-in child care and dinner will be provided at no cost.

To participate, please contact Karlene Grabner at 920-426-3993 or Karlene@OshkoshAreaCF.org. Please respond by Nov. 19.
