We are a 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.
This amendment provides Detroit Educational Television (DPTV) with additional funding as part of their Detroit ECE Support grant to broadcast and produce media segments from the Hope Starts Here Summit in November 2019. As part of its initial Detroit ECE Support grant, DPTV is working with early childhood providers throughout Detroit, equipping them to use media and storytelling to advance priorities of providers, children, and families. This amendment supplements that grant by also broadcasting the Hope Starts Here Summit, which will mark the launch of Hope Starts Here's implementation phase. DPTV will live-stream the summit, record its plenary sessions, and house, produce and advertise a mini-series of videos from the Summit to promote the Hope Starts Here framework and the calls to action emanating from it.
