Hiram R. Schmitt, a longtime Mequon resident, left his estate to the then township to meet the social welfare needs of its people. Looking to maximize the value of his generous gift, Mequon officials turned to the Greater Milwaukee Foundation for help.

Since 1984, the Mequon/Hiram Schmitt Fund has supported agencies that offer educational, health and human service programs, including capital projects, in Mequon or that serve its residents.
