Health Improvement Fund

The health of individuals is a strong indicator of the health of a community. Achieving and maintaining good health is important during all stages of life, from conception through childhood, into adulthood and through older age.

But many people in our community struggle to get the care they need.

The Milwaukee Health Care Partnership, a collaboration between the regional health systems, federally qualified health centers, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations, aims to reduce disparities and improve health outcomes for low-income and otherwise vulnerable people in our community.

To make sure all people have an equal opportunity to be healthy, United Way and the Milwaukee Health Care Partnership created the Health Improvement Fund to support non-profit, health and human service providers in Milwaukee County.

Grants are made to organizations working towards one or more of the following priorities:

  • COVERAGE: Securing and retaining adequate and affordable health insurance coverage for all.
  • ACCESS: Increasing timely and appropriate access to quality health care providers and services.
  • CARE COORDINATION: Enhancing care coordination and navigation across the health care delivery system.
  • COMMUNITY HEALTH: Improving community health through cross-sector collaboration.

Your gift to the Health Improvement Fund connects vulnerable populations to high quality medical, dental, behavioral health and prevention services.



New and increased gifts matched six to one by the Milwaukee Health Care Partnership from 7/1/22 to 6/30/23 up to $2 million.
