The Kresge Foundation

$20 million

As part of our ongoing dedication to advance tangible, sustainable and long term progress in Detroit, the Kresge Foundation is proud to announce $20 million in new commitments over the next five years to build out a high-quality early childhood development system in the city of Detroit in collaboration with local, state and federal partners. Our overarching goal is to ensure that Detroit’s youngest children have access to the highest quality early childhood development opportunities and are prepared for kindergarten. We will focus on elevating and promoting early childhood care and education opportunities in neighborhoods throughout the city and filling gaps in the current system. We will do so in partnership with a diverse set of community stakeholders and the Southeast Michigan Early Childhood Funders Collaborative.
