Greater Milwaukee Foundation

Established in 1915 so that citizens could maximize their ability to address pressing local needs and plan for the future, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation now holds $712 in assets. In 2013, it made 3,807 grants totaling $39 million focused on initiatives in its four priority areas: strengthening education, strengthening neighborhoods, increasing economic opportunities, and promoting racial equity and inclusion. Through its Healthy Neighborhood Initiative, the foundation is partnering with the City to support projects in 10 Milwaukee neighborhoods focused on stabilizing the real estate market, building social connections, improving positive image, and improving physical conditions. The Foundation also has taken a leadership role in convening education, civic, and business leaders to partner on Milwaukee Succeeds, a collaborative initiative to ensure the success of every Milwaukee child from cradle to career.
