Zilber Neighborhood Initiative


In  2008, the Zilber Family Foundation announced a $50 million commitment to  improve the quality of life in Milwaukee neighborhoods, starting with Lindsay  Heights and Clarke Square.  It formed a partnership—called the Zilber  Neighborhood Initiative—with Walnut  Way Conservation Corp.  in Lindsay Heights. Since then residents, educators, business owners, and nonprofit leaders have come together  to envision the future of their neighborhoods. The Foundation supports this  work with multi-year grants for staff, operating expenses, organizing and  planning, as well as funding for organizational development, technical  assistance, and “early action” projects.
