Umbrella Groups

An umbrella, sometimes called a federation or association, is an organization that represents groups of nonprofit charities in the Milwaukee Partners in Giving campaign. Some umbrellas bring together charities with common missions, such as health care or environmental conservation. Others are associations of nonprofits with wide-ranging interests.

To participate in this campaign, a charity must belong to an umbrella organization, and both the charity and the umbrella must meet the campaign eligibility requirements set by the Wisconsin Department of Administration.
