2017 Nonprofit Excellence Awards

Dan Meyer

How can companies and nonprofits in southeastern Wisconsin collaborate to solve the problems facing businesses, while benefiting the community?

The panelists at the 2017 BizTimes Nonprofit Excellence Awards program tackled that question head on at the event on Nov. 2. More than 350 gathered to listen to the discussion.

In recent years, business owners across a number of industries have bemoaned the skills gap. The conversation at the Nonprofit Excellence Awards centered on how business owners can take action to address their skills gaps by finding creative solutions.

We also recognized those in the community working to create change and help move Milwaukee forward, including individuals, corporations and nonprofits. The Nonprofit Excellence Awards winners were chosen from among dozens of nominees, and serve as a great example of selflessness for us all.

In the following pages, we share the stories of the finalists and winners. We hope their efforts inspire you to make your own piece of Milwaukee better.

Thank you to our honorees and finalists for showing us how it’s done. And thank you to the partners and sponsors who helped make this event possible: Town Bank, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino and Mueller QAAS.
