Do-It Campaign to End Isolation

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”- Winston Churchill

Today you could change a life, end isolation, and support the heart of your community—its people. How? By giving to the Women’s Fund of Oshkosh, you’ll be contributing to a “Do-It Campaign” that will raise funds for programs specifically designed to end isolation in Winnebago County.

Why isolation?

Did you know that 1 in 4 Americans feels alone? The feeling of isolation is all too common, and can negatively affect your physical and mental health. Loneliness takes a greater toll on your health than obesity or physical inactivity and can be as harmful as smoking. Together, we can end isolation and prevent loneliness from spreading throughout our community.

The Women’s Fund and Community First Credit Union have teamed up for this $20,000 match grant targeted towards improving the lives of women and girls throughout Winnebago County. Community First will provide a dollar for dollar match up to $10,000. Even by donating $10 you can help us to reach our goal and create lasting social change!

Donate online at oshkoshareacf.org, or mail your contribution to the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation at 230 Ohio Street, Oshkosh, WI 54902.
