What We Do

Our vision
Greater Milwaukee becomes a vibrant, economically thriving region comprised of welcoming and inclusive communities that provide opportunity, prosperity and a high quality of life for all.

Our values
This is at the heart of all we do. We demonstrate integrity through honesty, civility and respect. We respect each other and take pride in our work.

We provide exemplary service, nurturing relationships for generations and honoring commitments. We hold ourselves to the highest standards of ethics, accountability and fiduciary responsibility.

We partner with our vast network of donors, nonprofits and community leaders, developing effective strategies and mobilizing resources to strengthen communities and address persistent challenges.

We believe that all voices are vital to our region's future. We promote equity and embrace the diversity of individuals, ideas and expressions. We are committed to learning from our partners and leading by example.


Greater Milwaukee Foundation (GMF), the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) and the Royal Capital Group (RCG) have established the historic, community-based ThriveOn Collaboration founded on a joint vision for a Milwaukee that is equitable, healthy and thriving for all.

This commitment is physically embodied in the restoration and redevelopment of an iconic building in the Historic King Drive district at the nexus of three vital north side neighborhoods - Halyard Park, Harambee and Brewers Hill. The former Gimbels-Schuster's Department Store, 2153 N. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, most recently owned by CH Coakley, will be redeveloped by RCG and will become the Foundation's new home and will house MCW's community engagement programs. The partners will build on the vibrant history and current assets of the neighborhood, seize on the momentum growing throughout the city and join community members to realize a shared vision for positive change.
