Access to health care services among underserved populations is a key priority for Aurora Health Care. Aurora has established a charitable fund at the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and, in partnership with the Foundation, will facilitate grantmaking over time. Through a commitment of $5 million, the Better Together Fund will support the expansion of primary care and behavioral health services, as well as sexual assault and domestic violence prevention and treatment programs in eastern Wisconsin.
Aurora is inviting eastern Wisconsin federally qualified health centers, free clinics and sexual assault and domestic violence prevention and treatment programs to submit a proposal for funding consideration. Colleges and universities also are invited to apply for support of their programs that address the issues of sexual assault prevention on campus.
Aurora Health Care is a not-for-profit Wisconsin-area health care provider and a national leader in efforts to improve health care quality. It offers services at sites in more than 90 communities throughout eastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois and is Wisconsin's most comprehensive health care provider and the state's largest private employer.
