The goal of the Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Foundation, located in Southfield, is to enrich humanity by strengthening and empowering children and families in need. The philosophy is grounded in the beliefs of the founders and the family’s Jewish values that life’s purpose is found in service to others. In the Jewish tradition of tzedakah, the foundation works to repair the world alongside those who share its mission. It works with partners and leaders to provide for the needs of the ongoing vitality, success, and well-being of the Jewish people; provides children and their families the opportunity to access and engage with high-quality early childhood development resources; provides children and youth in need with enrichment, exposure, and instruction in arts and culture; and invest in impactful causes. The foundation was founded in 1955 and endowed following the death of Max M. Fisher in 2005.
