Hope House of Milwaukee, Inc.


While designing a new website, we learned how out-of-date and dysfunctional our old wesite was. By planning ahead of time, we were able to move through the process quickly while still obtaining all the function we wanted in a new website.



The Women's Center, Inc.


The Women's Center requested assistance in updating our agency's personnel policy manual. Funding from the Nonprofit Management Fund enabled us to hire a contractor specializing in personnel policies for nonprofit agencies. Our personnel policy manual is now in-line with current human resource practices.

About Us

The mission of the Nonprofit Management Fund is to improve the management effectiveness and efficiency of nonprofit organizations and to increase the resources for nonprofit management in the greater Milwaukee area. The expectations are that grantees will become more effective and efficient in serving clients, program participants, their audience, or the community-at-large.

Since 1994, the Nonprofit Management Fund has operated as a collaboration of private funders in the metropolitan Milwaukee area. Collectively, the funders in Milwaukee have contributed over $9 million for grants to nonprofit organizations and to implement related initiatives.


Sample funding areas: board development, staff training, strategic/annual planning, mergers, marketing, corporate restructuring, organizational assessment, financial management, human resources, technology, earned income strategies, and fundraising.
