Milwaukee is a vibrant city with much to offer. However, poverty, lack of access to good jobs and education and racial tension have created a deep divide – one that must be bridged for the entire community to realize its potential.
Many people, companies and nonprofit organizations give tirelessly of their time and energy to provide better access to jobs, education, food and adequate health care. But how does it all work together, and what could we be doing better?
That was the focus of the panel discussion at the third annual BizTimes Nonprofit Excellence Awards on Nov. 3. More than 350 Milwaukee professionals and volunteers gathered to take part in the discussion, led by a panel of experts.
We also had the opportunity to recognize those working day-in and day-out to bring Milwaukee together and lift up the disadvantaged among us. The Nonprofit Excellence Award winners were chosen from among dozens of nominees, all of them deserving of our thanks.
We hope the profiles of this year’s best corporate citizens and most effective nonprofit organizations and leaders inspire you and your employees to get out there and lend a hand.
Thank you to our honorees and finalists for leading by example. And thank you to the partners and sponsors who helped make this recognition possible: M3 Insurance, Master Z’s, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, TEC and the Wisconsin Philanthropy Network.
