New Senior Center Sign Is Great Help To All

We would like to thank the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley for awarding the Oswego Senior Center a grant to purchase a sign for the outside of our building identifying us as the “Oswego Senior Center” and new software and hardware for our computer lab.

The sign will be a great help for newcomers and passersby to identify the Senior Center, which is located at 156 E. Washington.  The computer hardware and software will help us broaden our computer classes and challenge individuals taking the classes and using the computer lab.   The Oswego Senior Center is very grateful to be supported by the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley.

Thank you again.

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

There’s no question in my mind that the scholarship I received opened up possibilities.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.
