The Kresge Foundation is 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.
In collaboration with our nonprofit, public, private and philanthropic partners, we help create pathways for low-income people to improve their life circumstances and join the economic mainstream.
“Creating opportunity for low-income people is a hallmark of our work at The Kresge Foundation,” says Rip Rapson, president and CEO. “Our programs reflect the inflection points where we think we can actually make a difference in the life trajectories of people who are poor, disadvantaged or underserved in fundamental ways.”
