Grants to Greater Milwaukee, Wisconsin nonprofit organizations for programs and projects benefitting disadvantaged and low-income individuals, children, women, and the elderly. Program areas include community and social development, health, arts and culture, and education.

Community and Social Development:
With a concern for low-income and disadvantaged families, the Foundation has designated two areas for special consideration: early childhood development and assistance to women and children in poverty. The Foundation also supports programs which enable youth to develop leadership skills, character and self-esteem.

The Foundation gives priority to community-based health care and prevention programs which address the physical and mental health needs of families, children, persons at-risk and the elderly. Support and advocacy for victims of abuse and neglect are also a priority.

The Foundation believes that access to educational opportunities will enable youth and adults to become productive and contributing members of society. The Foundation encourages the development of educational programs and systems which are responsive to emerging community needs. Priority will be given to programs for low-income and at-risk youth.

Arts and Culture:
The Foundation supports the ongoing expenses of arts and cultural organizations through projects which offer guidance as well as individual and social development of young people.
