ABOUT THE GREATER MILWAUKEE FOUNDATION
The Greater Milwaukee Foundation (GMF) is part of a movement that started more than 100 years ago and has transformed philanthropy and communities worldwide. It all grew out of an idea that passionate and generous people can come together to make a difference and make their community into what they ideally want it to become. The Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s work and decision-making is guided by the core values of integrity, service effectiveness, and inclusion. We share the same passion as our donors when they give and engage and as our community partners when they carry out their mission of serving others.
The Greater Milwaukee Foundation is proud to support donors and nonprofits in creating a vibrant region in many lasting ways, serving as a community leader on advancing racial equity, strengthening education, increasing economic opportunities and building strong neighborhoods. Over the past two years, the Foundation has been on a learning journey with our Board and staff toward building a more equitable culture that promotes measured risk taking and enhanced responsibility for decision making.
