UNDER ONE ROOF CAMPAIGN
A concept first brought to light in 1992, the Ozaukee Nonprofit Center (ONC) in Grafton, Wisconsin serves as a central hub for human service nonprofits to connect and collaborate. The ONC is a multi-faceted nonprofit that provides shared workspace and resources to a variety of organizations. It is an asset to our community – creating the right environment for people to do great things through the strength of partnership.
The ONC and its partner agencies are moving to a larger, remodeled facility in 2021. Designed to address these nonprofits’ growing needs, the building offers a range of features like modernized conference rooms, convenient storage space, and a contemporary event hall to support their day-to-day activities and mission-critical initiatives. Moreover, the larger space and upgraded setup will allow for other local nonprofits to find a common home and forge new relationships.
Our vision for sustainable growth and support will be realized through the transition. This shift in location should help to increase visibility of the ONC and each of its partner agencies within the community. The new building’s size and flow lends itself to elevated operations for the agencies as well as a safe and secure destination for their clients and volunteers.
The “Under One Roof” campaign recognizes the importance and impact of these human service nonprofits on our families, friends, and neighbors. Please show your collective support for all of these amazing organizations and the community at large through donation and sponsorship.
