About the Ruth Nordhaus Fund

Connecting with people and touching lives was easy for Ruth Nordhaus.

She shared her gift of song as a pianist and organist in churches and through music lessons to young people. Ruth's passion for sharing didn't end there. She loved music so much that she wanted to provide young people
the opportunity to learn and encourage musicality, so Ruth chose the Women's Fund in her will.

Now, Ruth's gift of song will play on through music scholarships and by supporting women and music. Through the Ruth A. Nordhaus Scholarship Fund, which provides music scholarships for female students in the city of Oshkosh, and the Ruth A. Nordhaus fund, a field of interest fund supporting women and music, Ruth's legacy continues to nurture young talent.
