ABOUT US - FINANCIALS - AUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENT
Every year, the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation undergoes a thorough financial audit. Though not required by law, we believe this process fosters trust among our donors and transparency throughout the community.

The audit is completed by an independent auditing firm. Our most recent audit was conducted by Wipfli, LLP.
