Children's Hospital of Wisconsin receives $1.2M donation

Milwaukee-based Children's Hospital of Wisconsin received a $1.2 million donation from the Windhover Foundation to support ongoing research at the Herma Heart Center, according to Milwaukee Business News.

The gift, from the foundation established by the family of the late Quad/Graphics founder Harry Quadracci, will be used to advance research on eradicating congenital heart disease and improving quality of life for heart patients.

The $1.2 million backs a challenge gift from the Herma family, who pledged to match every donation to the hospital's heart center up to $8 million.

"The fact that Milwaukee … can boast having one of the leading pediatric hospitals in the country is something we cannot take for granted. Every dollar donated to the hospital makes a direct impact on our community. I look forward to seeing the advancements the hospital makes through this effort inspired by the Herma family," Joel Quadracci, president and CEO of Quad/Graphics, told Milwaukee Business News.
