About the Nonprofit Management Fund

For 19 years, the Nonprofit Management Fund has built the capacity of more than 1,500 local nonprofits to achieve their missions more effectively. The founding sponsors created a donor-advised fund at the Greater Milwaukee Foundation to award technical assistance grants aimed at improving the management and governance of nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations. In 2013, two Nonprofit Management Funds, based in Milwaukee and Waukesha, cover the four-county metropolitan area strengthening nonprofit management and governance. In addition to making technical assistance grants, allocations are also made to support critical sector-wide initiatives. For a full copy of the application, policies and funding guidelines, visit the Fund’s web site.


The Nonprofit Management Funds improve the management effectiveness and efficiency of nonprofit organizations and increase the resources for nonprofit management in the greater Milwaukee area.
