MILWAUKEE (May 10, 2017) – Michael Best is pleased to announce M. Rhett Holland has been named to the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Herbert J. Mueller Society.
The recognition society acknowledges the efforts of professional advisers who are committed to their clients, philanthropy, and the community. Holland is one of 12 new members this year to the society, which now includes more than 300 professional advisers.
The society is named in memory of Herbert Mueller, a local estate planning attorney who, through his quiet efforts, helped shape the Foundation into the strong, stable, and successful organization it is today. By the time of his death in 2001 at age 91, Mueller had worked with his clients to start more than a dozen Foundation funds with gifts totaling nearly $50 million.
For more than a century, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation has helped individuals, families, and organizations realize their philanthropic goals and make a difference in the community, during their lifetimes, and for future generations. The Foundation consists of more than 1,200 individual charitable funds, each created by donors to serve the charitable causes of their choice. The Foundation deploys both human and financial resources to address the most critical needs of the community and ensure the vitality of the region. Established in 1915, the Foundation was one of the first community foundations in the world and is now among the largest.
