MORE LOCAL STORIES – The OACF BLOG

OACFLogoV_WEB

We are back!  (YAY!)

As part of an ongoing effort by the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation to increase the visibility of our donors, partners, and agencies within the community, we’ve decided to invest in a blog with regular posting times!

So what?

So now we have another tool with which to engage our community.

What’s a blog like anyway?

Think of a blog as a story that’s longer than a Facebook post yet shorter than an article in one of our annual reports.  Blogs provide us with a vehicle to showcase stories about our donor advised funds, scholarship and grant recipients, and special projects within our service area.  

Why bother?

Well, quite simply our constituents media consumption trends are changing!  In 2016 we partnered with the Business Success Center at UW-Oshkosh to to survey a cross-section of our service area about dozens of community foundation items.  The data showed us that:

  • 49% of respondents hear about OACF activities from friends & family
  • 31% of respondents would pay most attention to OACF news in a digital format (vs. print)
  • 22% of respondents want more frequent information on OACF activities

What now?

Expect a fresh blog at the beginning of every week full of more donor stories, more grant stories, and more project stories.  We will also be featuring guest bloggers throughout the year from partner agencies and affiliates.  If there’s a particular topic you’d like to learn more about, let us know!

    1. Are you referring to the line “so now we have another tool with which to engage the community”? If so, that means that can use this blog (a digital tool) to publish stories relative to OACF more frequently and consistently than we have been. Does that make sense?
