The Oishei Foundation is honored to be featured in the GRANTMAKERS CONCERNED WITH IMMIGRANTS AND REFUGEES' Grantmaker's Profile.
The Foundation views immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers as integral to the makeup of the larger Buffalo-Niagara community and to the work Oishei supports to benefit the region. Quantifying the magnitude of the support is challenging since a vast number of Oishei’s grantees across its program areas likely support refugee and asylum seeker populations indirectly or in a less targeted fashion. Food banks, health, education, workforce, and self sufficiency
programs are prime examples of this indirect or broad-based support.
