About the Foundation

The OASD Education Foundation strives to engage the community in supporting Oshkosh public schools and is committed to providing resources for innovation, fine arts, athletics, scholarships, and other resources to enhance students' lives. The Foundation fuels this new and innovative programming through teacher-driven grant requests.

This funding helps teachers implement creative ideas that expand their students’ academic experiences - inspiring lifelong learning and success. 

The OASD Education Foundation is a collaboration of businesses, nonprofits, community partners and generous donors who have one common goal: to advance excellence in our schools. The Foundation’s endowment fund exists to help develop and enhance the OASD education system for future generations and provide a permanent source of support. Established in 2012, the OASD Education Foundation is managed by the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose donors enjoy maximum tax advantages.
