Crowd funding: GMF invests in gathering places

Communities that gather together are greater together. By supporting community-led efforts to reimagine public gathering places in Waukesha, Washington, Ozaukee and Milwaukee counties, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation is expanding opportunities for neighbors and families to strengthen social connections and civic pride. Special gifts of $200,000 each helped fund the renovation of Old Settlers Park in downtown West Bend, a rebuilt Cedar Creek Park band shell in Cedarburg, redesigned playgrounds in Milwaukee and a next generation boardwalk coming soon to downtown Oconomowoc.
