We are a $3.6 billion private, national foundation that works to expand opportunities in America’s cities through grantmaking and social investing in arts and culture, education, environment, health, human services and community development in Detroit.
With a $1 million grant and $6 million loan, Kresge is the latest funding partner in an unprecedented effort to annually triple the number of permanent supportive housing units in the City of Los Angeles.
Kresge Foundation President and CEO Rip Rapson announced new procedures to enhance responsiveness and effectiveness with grantees and grant applicants. The changes are in response to the Center for Effective Philanthropy’s Grantee Perception Report, the leading “customer satisfaction” survey in the philanthropic sector.
