Discover how a Milwaukee funder collaborative is designing a mixed-use neighborhood while prioritizing community voice.
Join this webinar to learn how the Greater Milwaukee Foundation (GMF), the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), Royal Capital (a Black-owned developer), and the residents of three Milwaukee neighborhoods are partnering on the ThriveOn Collaboration: A $120 million investment and new place-based approach to addressing interrelated health, economic, social and racial inequities.
These neighborhoods are resilient, historically Black and have long stood as beacons for art and culture in Milwaukee, and residents have been engaged since the launch of the project. The residents are responsible for designing the Community HUB - the first-floor space of ThriveOn King, a development housing GMF's offices, multiple MCW community and research centers, and mixed income housing. The Community HUB will include tenant businesses reflecting what the community identified as priorities. Join us to learn how the ThriveOn Collaboration embedded community engagement, moving at the speed of trust, and participatory grantmaking in their strategy.
This project is designed around power-sharing, centering lived experiences, and working collaboratively to support positive change while mitigating the negative impact of neighborhood growth and redevelopment. Explore how you could implement these strategies in your community.
