Milwaukee Soldiers Home started with a goal of having 100 women each donate or pledge $1,000 over 5 years to raise $100,000. To date, women have donated $180,000 in gifts and pledges. With the very generous matching grants from Lynde Uihlein ($100,000), the Tawani Foundation ($25,000), the Woman’s Club of Wisconsin ($3,000) and the Women’s Fund of Greater Milwaukee ($5,000), the campaign now has a total of $313,000 committed to the restoration of the Women’s Wing of Old Main. The Woman’s Club of Wisconsin has organized a group of volunteers to help raise the remaining funds to get to the goal of $350,000.
