Healthcare worker checking patientEveryone deserves an equal opportunity to be healthy.

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

United Way and Milwaukee Health Care Partnership health system members (Ascension Wisconsin, Aurora Health Care, Children’s Wisconsin, and Froedtert ThedaCare Health Inc.) created the Mental Health Improvement Fund to support organizations providing health care and support services to low-income populations. 

Grants are made to organizations working towards one or more of these strategies:

  • COVERAGE: Securing and retaining adequate and affordable health insurance and strengthening the impact of government programs and services.
  • ACCESS:  Increasing availability, accessibility and acceptability of health care programs and services.
  • CARE COORDINATION: Enhancing navigation, connections and the coordination of care across the delivery system.
  • COMMUNITY HEALTH: Identifying and collectively addressing prioritized community health issues.




New and increased gifts matched six to one by the Milwaukee Health Care Partnership from 7/1/24 to 6/30/25 up to $2 million.
