Without Money, there is no Mission.

WWBIC is grateful to all of our investors, donors, and partners for funding and sustaining our mission. As a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, we rely on a blend of public, private and earned revenue to support our day-to-day operations as well as fund our revolving business loan fund. The financial contributions of our funders allow us to continually build capacity, provide innovative services, and improve the economic landscape throughout Wisconsin.

All of our private funding is substantially leveraged with local and federal government funding – WWBIC has been named by the Public Policy Forum as one of Southeast Wisconsin’s leading organizations in securing federal funds for our community.

For more information about this opportunity, please contact Wendy K. Baumann, WWBIC President/CVO.


True Partners are those people who move you forward.

We are proud to work with major partners and supporters from Wisconsin, the region and our nation.
