An anonymous donor has given $1 million to help transform a former department store in Milwaukee into a "vibrant community hub," per a press release from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation.

The first floor of the ThriveOn King building, which is being renovated by the Foundation, Medical College of Wisconsin, and Royal Capital Partners, will include spaces that include an early childhood education center, a community gathering space, art spaces, and more.

"We are moved by the anonymous donor's generosity in making a lead gift to ThriveOn King's first floor, including the community gathering space and the early learning center," says Ellen Gilligan, president and CEO of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation.

"Seeing the progress and potential of ThriveOn King, the donor hopes their gift will inspire others to co-invest with us to bring this innovative, community vision to life."

The project is part of the foundation's Greater Together Campaign, which aims to realize "an equitable, thriving Milwaukee for all by focusing on the building blocks of a healthy life, including housing, early childhood education, food access, health and wellness, economic opportunity, and neighborhood leadership," per the press release.
