The Greater Milwaukee Foundation Honored Ten Chimneys as May 'Gift to the Community'

Throughout 2015, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation is offering Gifts to the Community that celebrate the Foundation’s centennial while providing special opportunities that connect people with meaningful resources in the region.

Ten Chimneys Foundation was thrilled to have been chosen as one of the May gifts, along with Cedarburg Art Museum and the Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA) in West Bend. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to share this historic treasure with new guests.  

Each month, the Foundation will team up with FOX 6 Milwaukee to reveal a new Gift to the Community on the morning news show, Real Milwaukee. Watch FOX 6 Milwaukee from 9 -10 a.m. weekdays for the next surprise announcement.
