Since the McGregor Fund’s founding in 1925, the private Detroit foundation has granted more than $260 million for work that uplifts those in need. With a goal of ending homelessness, the fund has supported organizations that provide food and shelter to community members at no cost. It is also committed to recovery and restoration support for people experiencing crises such as abuse, addiction, and human trafficking. Noticing a lack of opportunity for Detroiters to escape poverty, the fund also supports work that expands educational and career opportunities for teenagers and adults. Though temporarily on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the fund offers a fellowship that allows directors of the fund’s partner agencies to step away from their typical roles and focus on other activities that benefit their work, similar to a sabbatical.
