Community support

At Children's Wisconsin, our vision is that the kids of Wisconsin will be the healthiest in the nation, and mental and behavioral health plays a vital role in that. This is a powerful vision — and one we can't accomplish alone. 

At our side every step of the way are generous individuals, corporations, foundations and organizations that care about Wisconsin's kids as much as we do. Without this support, Children’s Wisconsin would not be able to fully meet our commitment to improving mental and behavioral health access for Wisconsin’s kids. We are grateful to the following early supporters of our mental and behavioral health initiatives. 

The mental and behavioral health initiatives identified by Children’s Wisconsin will require $150 million over five years and will be funded by philanthropy, patient revenue, state and federal resources, contracts and partnership. When we look to our community to support this work, a visionary benefactor has responded with a $15 million challenge to the community! With this very generous funding, it’s time to accelerate our work to address the mental and behavioral health crisis our kids face.
