About On the Table
The Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s On the Table MKE is a regionwide forum offering a unique opportunity to engage in meaningful conversation about what we must do – individually and collectively – to improve the quality of life in our community. On Oct. 17, 2017, more than 5,400 residents throughout greater Milwaukee gathered in small groups to share a meal—breakfast, lunch, coffee or dinner-- and discuss the opportunities and challenges we face.
To learn more about the themes that emerged from the conversations, read the Voices from the Tables community report.
About the Greater Milwaukee Foundation
The Greater Milwaukee Foundation is the region’s largest community foundation and was among the first established in the world. For more than a century, the Foundation has inspired philanthropy by connecting generous people to community needs that align with their interests.
The Foundation was founded on the premise that generosity can unlock an individual’s potential and strengthen the community as a whole for everyone who lives here. We work in partnership with those who are committed to ensuring greater Milwaukee is a vibrant, economically thriving region that comprises welcoming and inclusive communities providing opportunity, prosperity and a high quality of life for all.
The Foundation serves Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington and Waukesha counties, and our donors support causes locally and around the world. Since being established in 1915, the Foundation has awarded more than $621 million in grants – including a historic $60 million in 2016 – supporting a wide variety of nonprofits and initiatives that are forging a brighter future for the people of greater Milwaukee.
