The Helen Bader Foundation has awarded more than $200 million in grants to worthwhile organizations around the world since 1992.

Our grants link the present with
possibilities

At the Helen Bader Foundation, our goal is lofty, yet simple: Turn today’s challenges into tomorrow’s accomplishments.

Simply stated, we help organizations in our program areas move from “how things are” to “how things could be.”

We do this by supporting worthy organizations that make life better for people in their communities. Through awarded grants we are able to help organizations in Milwaukee bring young and elderly residents together in exciting and stimulating after-school activities that recharge attitudes and give participants a new perspective on one another. By creating scholarship funds, we can give children and families educational options they wouldn’t otherwise have.
