The Milwaukee area is a great place to live, work and play, but our community also has a number of major challenges, some of which were demonstrated by the civil unrest in the city’s Sherman Park neighborhood this past summer.
Luckily, there is an eager and driven group of leaders and organizations working to make a difference in our community – from the inner city to the suburbs.
The following Profiles in Philanthropy detail the individual and collective efforts of the Milwaukee area’s professional community to lift up their fellow Milwaukeeans and extend aid where it’s needed.
From those who find their passion in a charity’s mission to the next generation of givers, there are many local efforts underway to lend a hand through the donation of time, talent and treasure. BizTimes Media has highlighted a few of the beacons of hope in our midst.
Each profile also aims to inspire readers to step outside the walls of their workplace and contribute to a community cause that aligns with their passions.
