Increasing economic opportunities


Income and assets. These are key tools toward achieving economic stability and success. But far too many people in the greater Milwaukee area have not been able to achieve them.

The Greater Milwaukee Foundation supports many strategies that work toward increasing economic security, ensuring greater access to employment opportunities, and meeting the basic food and shelter needs of area individuals and families.
