We are an institution that is deeply committed to sharing the lessons that result from our work with grantees and partners through storytelling, research and convenings.
Our programs seek to expand opportunity for low-income people so they can gain the tools and supports needed to lead self-determined lives and join the economic mainstream.
We deploy an array of grantmaking and social investing tools – usually in partnership with nonprofit, public, private and philanthropic organizations – to address society’s most intractable problems.
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.
