Funder Spotlight: Greater Milwaukee Business Foundation on Health

Since 2008 the Greater Milwaukee Business Foundation on Health (GMBFH) has invested more than $790,000 with organizations that are helping to improve coverage, access and care coordination for low-income patients in Milwaukee County.

A private operating foundation created in 2002, the mission of GMBFH is to undertake studies, programs and activities which promote the general health of the persons residing in the greater Milwaukee area, and advance their awareness of health and health care delivery issues affecting them.

The GMBFH is not a grant making foundation.  Instead, it works collaboratively with established organizations to improve health and healthcare delivery in the greater Milwaukee area.  Partnership affiliates / organizations that have benefitted from GMBHF support are:

“We appreciate having access to the Drug Assistant prescription sourcing tool.  It is an incredibly efficient process that leads to greater safety and helps ensure that folks don’t run out of their medication. Thanks so much to GMBFH for helping us improve medication access for patients.”
