The Foundation’s namesake, Buffalo native John R. Oishei, was a highly respected businessman whose company changed an industry, and a visionary philanthropist whose generosity continues to impact countless lives.
A legacy that lives on
Although a completely separate entity from the Foundation, The John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital—towering above the city a mere quarter-mile from Oishei’s first Trico factory—was named as a tribute to his remarkable legacy.
