Established in 1985, Professional Dimensions Charitable Fund (PDCF) enables the members of Professional Dimensions to pool our resources to advance the self-sufficiency of women and girls in the Greater Milwaukee area. Formed as a 501(c)(3) organization PDCF has become a vanguard for leading change on issues such as domestic abuse, sex trafficking, racism, emotional and physical health and women's economic empowerment.

How does the Legacy Fund work?
The Legacy Fund was created in 2014 as a donor advised fund of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation (GMF). Different from a traditional endowment, a donor advised fund allows the PDCF Board to contribute to projects when the community need arises, rather than being limited to a 5% principle. As long as the required minimum balance, currently $25,000, is maintained, the PDCF Board of Directors has the flexibility to determine the best opportunity to innovate and elevate our community through the Legacy Fund.
Quarterly funds earmarked for the Legacy Fund are transferred from PDCF to the GMF. The GMF's 100+ year history and exceptional investment planning ensures your gift will be stewarded with the utmost care and long-term impact.
What guides the Legacy Fund?
The PDCF Board of Directors is responsible for determining the grant opportunities for the Legacy Fund. They are guided by a mission which enables members to pool resources to advance women and girls in our community through shared experiences and financial contributions.
Our PD values are demonstrated by expanding what is possible for women and the world they influence. We are community leaders focused on meaningful action and intentional inclusion.
We can't do it alone.
By joining your resources with other members, we have the opportunity to give back in a much more significant way than any one person on their own. Give a lifetime or planned gift and share the satisfaction of knowing tomorrow's PDCF will continue to build strong and meaningful action across our community.
Naming Professional Dimensions Charitable Fund in your will, living trust, or as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, life insurance or brokerage accounts are the simplest ways to make planned gifts. You can also make a gift during your lifetime. Please call upon our PD office to assist you with your intention to support.
