Board of Directors
Since 1988, Milwaukee Public Library Foundation's Board of Directors has been led by community leaders who value the library, and today continue their vision of generating private-sector support to supplement tax-based funding. The result has been improved collections, expanded programs, enhanced services, and renovated buildings. The credit for the foundation's impact belongs mainly to the people of Milwaukee. Over the years, thousands of generous individuals, corporations, and foundations have demonstrated their deep commitment to the Milwaukee Public Library by donating to the foundation.
