Milwaukee 7 goes public with $6 million fundraising campaign

The Milwaukee 7 Partnership for Economic Development is seeking to raise $6 million by 2025 to support its economic development efforts in southeastern Wisconsin.

The campaign, which is being chaired by WEC Energy Group executive chairman Gale Klappa and Haribo of America chief operating officer Rick LaBerge, has already raised $3 million.

“When M7 was founded, it was a statement that a united group of private sector leaders and government organizations could do far more together than any one of us could do alone,” Klappa said. “I’m proud to serve as a campaign co-chair as we refresh our strategy and continue to execute, bringing jobs and capital investment to the region.”
