Welcome to Bader Philanthropies

Bader Philanthropies, Inc. invests in people and their communities, here in Milwaukee, across Wisconsin, and in places throughout the world.

For years, you have known us as the Helen Bader Foundation. Now as Bader Philanthropies, we continue the legacy of Helen’s passion for people, while furthering Isabel and Alfred Bader’s shared interests. Our one goal is to make our communities — and the world — better places to live.


Bader Philanthropies operates with one
team and one process to support the aims
of two distinctive charitable funds.


The Helen Daniels Bader Fund (HDBF) seeks to enhance the lives of older adults in Wisconsin and Israel, to promote the arts, and to further Jewish education.


The Isabel and Alfred Bader Fund (IABF) seeks to strengthen Milwaukee and the world, by helping individuals realize their fullest human potential through the arts, faith, and individual opportunity.

As Bader Philanthropies, we will continue to make a difference for years and years to come. Join us.
