Years of Civic Impact


since 1948

The Greater
Milwaukee Committee

We comprise 200 passionate business and community leaders who work together to make Milwaukee the best place to live, learn, work, play, and stay for all. Driven by research and guided by our principles, we seek and support innovative solutions to community challenges.  We convene and collaborate with other organizations in the community to create new ideas and implement solutions, increase engagement in the community, and advance quality of life. We are currently focused on prioritizing the fiscal strength of our region, education, public safety, and infrastructure, all of which play an important role in creating a vibrant community.  

What's New

Updated November 13, 2023

The Greater Milwaukee Committee, a cross-sector consortium of local civic leaders, believes that the City’s fiscal sustainability is essential to both the well-being of Milwaukee residents and the economic vitality of the entire region. The GMC commissioned a detailed and comprehensive review to identify options to address immediate fiscal challenges and achieve long-term fiscal health. The GMC sought to uncover cost savings, enhance service delivery, and build on reforms undertaken over the last decade. This report represents the culmination of that effort.

Our Mission

The GMC is Milwaukee’s social innovation team, cultivating an equitable and thriving city. We engage local leaders and the community to collaboratively explore, create, and support impactful solutions to our most pressing civic and social issues.
