Why Donate

 to the Sherman Phoenix Foundation?

The Sherman Phoenix Foundation & Marketplace is a national model that has proven that translating conversation into action opens powerful possibilities. Birthed after a 2016 police shooting of an unarmed Black man in Milwaukee, the Sherman Phoenix Foundation transformed a fire-damaged bank building into a thriving hub for 27 Black-owned businesses and a vibrant community space that embraces talent and innovation and inspires new narratives for our future.

Our Mission

To revitalize and uplift Milwaukee’s community of color through cultural celebration, entrepreneurship support, and wellness resources.

Our Vision

To have a thriving community with increased socio-economic opportunities and wellness for people of color.
