Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants starting at $1,000 to Detroit, Michigan nonprofit organizations, public schools, and charter schools for programs that create and enhance educational opportunities for local students. The Foundation gives priority to proposals in the following areas:

- Early childhood education;
- STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics);
- Fine and performing arts;
- College preparedness; and
- Principal/teacher development.

Priority is given to grant applications for programs that are “intensive”, i.e. that involve multiple concentrated and focused learning opportunities for students and that have a lasting impact on students, rather than “exposure” programs that might serve a large number of students but have little or no lasting impact.
