Why is centering community in philanthropy critical to the success of the work of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation? For Ellen Gilligan, the organization’s president and CEO, it’s because it’s imperative to lead with an asset-based approach that invests in people because they best know what they need.

Additionally, Gilligan shares ideas about how individuals can make real and actionable change in communities, thereby improving the lives of others.

05:00 That is our special sauce that we have, it’s centering on communities and residents first in what we prioritize.

11:40 Everybody is shaped by their parents. They are the first teachers and they teach their values.

22:03 Find your passion, volunteer, give, get involved and go to a neighborhood that you have never been to.
