Joseph Zilber, the founder of Milwaukee-based Zilber Ltd., recently announced that the Joseph and Vera Zilber Foundation is making a $1.5 million donation to the Aurora Visiting Nurse Association (VNA). The money will help support a new hospice in the Milwaukee area and will provide funding for additional beds at the Aurora VNA Zilber Family Hospice, at 1155 Honey Creek Parkway in Wauwatosa. An earlier $1 million donation by Zilber was used to establish the Wauwatosa hospice. "Hearing from the many families who have shared positive memories at this hospice reinforced the value of providing more resources," Zilber said. The Aurora VNA does not yet have a specific site or timeline for the second hospice.
