Women's Fund of Greater Milwaukee
The Women's Fund is a social change grantmaker and that investments in cutting-edge programs at more than 100 community-based agencies through the support of more than 3,200 donors and 200 volunteers. We are the first and largest permanent resource in Wisconsin dedicated exclusively to funding and advocacy for the emerging needs of women and girls.
Our mission is social change through women and girls. We know that improving conditions for women and girls – getting at the root cause of social issues – has a ripple effect. When you invest in a woman, you invest in her family, and ultimately, her community.
We support women-led solutions that result in sustainable and long-lasting change for our community through two primary channels:
- Grantmaking programs, which provide the financial backing for social change initiatives.
- Capacity Building programs, which build the social change capacity of our community.
The Women’s Fund of Greater Milwaukee began in 1986. Today we are part of a fast-growing movement — one that recognizes that investments in women and girls can accelerate positive change in communities.
