The Valley's success is the result of a broad community effort.  During the last decade, thousands of people and hundreds of organizations have worked together to overcome tremendous obstacles, achieve unbelievable results, and advance Milwaukee's reputation as a national leader in sustainable redevelopment. Funders make the Menomonee River Valley's transformation possible.


Menomonee Valley Partners, Inc. is a nonprofit organization. We rely on the support of our funders to further efforts to revitalize the Menomonee River Valley to benefit the greater Milwaukee community.  We are grateful to those who support these efforts.
