Critical Conversation Starter: The Evolving Role and Impact of Philanthropic and Non-Profit Organizations

Date(s) - Tuesday, November 10th
7:00 pm CST - 8:00 pm CST



Philanthropic and non-profit organizations throughout Wisconsin provide significant services, opportunities and support in multiple ways. Here in Milwaukee, the diverse missions and outreach of Bader Philanthropies, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and United Way address key issues including employment, education, transportation and health care.

The pandemic and protests against systemic racism have amplified these issues and the disproportionate way in which communities already struggling are being further negatively impacted. These organizations are part of response initiatives coordinating and expanding access to these fundamental needs – the resulting efforts are visible through the projects they support and the demonstrated ways that they lead by example.

Join us for a panel discussion including the following participants:
– Frank Cumberbatch, Bader Philanthropies
– Ian Bautista, Greater Milwaukee Foundation
– Nicole Angresano, United Way

Tuesday, November 10, 7pm CT
Registration is Required to Access the Zoom Session


This program is free and open to the public.
