Looking for funding from foundations?
Learn more about potential funders from their IRS 990 forms. 990s are informational tax forms that most tax-exempt organizations must file annually. The form gives information about the organization's mission, programs and finances - including grants awarded.
Per MCW policy, all faculty and staff must work through the Office of Development before approaching or responding to private foundations for funding. Please contact the Office of Development at (414) 955-4739 with questions.
