For nearly forty years we have been a powerful voice boldly challenging the status quo and advocating for gender equity. We are not your average advocates; we are pioneers of change, weaving dreams into reality.
As disruptors for good, we are fearlessly uncompromising in the way we push boundaries and reshape societal norms in our quest to realize a world where every woman, girl, and gender-expansive person thrives authentically and unapologetically.
At the Women’s Fund of Greater Milwaukee, compassion meets expertise… and empathy fuels action. As we journey together toward gender equity, every dollar, every voice, and every heart matters. Your support becomes the ripple that transforms lives and illuminates Greater Milwaukee in progress.
Join the movement:
Be an outlaw for change, and let’s weave possibilities into reality together.
why our work matters
The latest study from the Women’s Philanthropy Institute at IUPUI indicates that only 1.9% of all charitable giving supports organizations for women and girls.

This is exciting! We are relaunching our brand and are thrilled to share our journey with you.
For nearly four decades, we have been advancing equity for women…by providing scholarship dollars, making grants, and convening community around important issues that impact women.
Today, we have incredible resolve to mobilize and foster unity. In an effort to strengthen interest and expand our impact, we reveal a new logo, refreshed colors, and messaging that resonates more authentically. We demonstrate our commitment to creating ripples of change with new WF Flash Grants, a collaboration with Lela, and another Women’s Fund Presents event.
The journey started months ago with intimate conversations with several stakeholders. Then we implemented a broad community survey. We asked what you wanted our focus to be, what is most important to you as a donor, and what is missing from our work.
You answered and we incorporated your feedback into our relaunch. This is the beginning our next chapter. We hope you like what you see and that you are inspired to enhance and deepen your commitment.
Please know that through the power of collective philanthropy, we use each gift to unite people, shape community consciousness, and promote solutions that create gender equity. We appreciate and value your ongoing curiosity and support. Thank you.
Chair, WF Brand Relaunch Committee
