McGregor Fund


The McGregor Fund is a private foundation organized “to relieve the misfortunes and promote the well-being of mankind.” It was established by a $5,000 deed of gift from Tracy W. McGregor in 1925. Later it was augmented to nearly $10 million through subsequent gifts from Mr. McGregor and his wife, Katherine Whitney McGregor. At June 30, 2012, the Fund’s assets had grown to $150 million and it had granted $215 million since its founding.

Over the years, the Fund has continued to be faithful to the stated intent of the donors. Grants to relieve misfortune and promote well-being are made in the following program areas: human services, education, health care, arts and culture, and public benefit. The area of principal interest to the McGregors, metropolitan Detroit and the tri-county area, remains the primary focus of the Fund.
