Milwaukee County War Memorial

Donor Spotlight: Foundation Support

WMC DonorsWith exciting plans in the works to celebrate our 60th anniversary in 2017, we take time to reflect on the transformative impact on the War Memorial Center from our local foundations and corporations.

Since our inception in 1957, foundations have been strong partners from the initial construction of this treasured landmark building through critical facility renovations in 2001 and 2015.

Foundation support enables the creation of new educational programs for youth and community and provides the critical funds necessary each year to support over $125,000 of services provided free of charge for veteran activities and programs.

We are proud to recognize these organizations and express our gratitude for their sustaining support – THANK YOU!
