Detroit is one of the world’s most storied and recognizable cities, its history of innovation and cultural heritage are unparalleled. In spite of – and in many cases because of – its challenges, Detroit remains a beacon in the minds of many for what can, and might, become of urban America. For over 70 years, the Hudson-Webber Foundation has quietly supported efforts to improve the quality of life in the city it calls home. With a nod towards our past and an eye on the future, the private foundation continues to lend a hand in moving Detroit into its next incarnation of innovation and prosperity.
Since 1939, the Hudson-Webber Foundation has provided grants of over $150 million, approximately 98% of which has been given to programs directly benefiting the metropolitan Detroit area.
