A new grantmaking framework is in the works, informed by Detroit youth and community. We’ve been guided by a year-long listening tour, our past investments in education systems change, and we continue to co-design alongside young Detroiters and those closest to them.

We’re partnering with people to transform education systems, nurturing the brilliance and power of Detroit youth. For our grantmaking, this means investing in Ground Building and Policy & Systems.

Our Ground Building investments nurture the power of Detroit youth and the power of educators and other community members who support young people to design and influence change.

Our Policy & Systems investments aim to shift policy and resource allocation to benefit Detroit kids, in response to the needs and will expressed by Detroit students, educators, and community advocates.

2023 will be a transition year for our grantmaking. As our framework develops, we’ll communicate here on our website and via our e-newsletter.
