MEETINGS

We plan three meetings per year:  February, June, late September/early October.

  • Meetings are on Tuesday evenings, with a social/registration period from 5:15 – 5:45 pm, and the business meeting 5:45 – 6:45 pm. 
  • Members can definitely stay and socialize after each meeting!

Following is the agenda for each meeting:

  • A member wishing to present a charity for consideration completes a Grant Proposal Checklist form and submits it when arriving at the meeting
  • From those forms submitted, three members are chosen at random to present a local charity to the group (five minutes)
  • Time for questions and answers concerning the charities presented (five – ten minutes)
  • All members vote for the charity of their choice
  • The charity with the most votes of the members receives the donation
  • Each member writes a check (personally tax deductible) to the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation Women Who Care Giving Circle ($100 for each individual member or team)
  • Core Team members deliver the checks to the Foundation
  • Core Team members present one check to the charity
  • Women Who Care members receive a tax deductible receipt from the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation
  • The Media section of our website will be updated to include the donation and any news articles
  • At the next meeting a charity representative explains how the money was used and its impact on the community

Mission:

To make an immediate and significant impact on our community while building relationships among women in the greater Oshkosh area.
