Building Equitable

Our communities thrive when everyone has a fair chance. The Gilbert Family Foundation is committed to investing in projects that break down long-standing barriers and create opportunities for Detroiters.

Why It Matters

Committed to Detroit.
Dedicated to Detroiters.

We believe in a future where all Detroiters are thriving. A city where economic opportunity is right outside each family’s doorstep. Where every single resident is proud to make Detroit the place they start businesses, build careers, form lifelong relationships  and – most importantly – call home.

The Numbers

Our Strategy

Securing Homes,
Building Wealth.

Our strategy focuses on protecting Detroit residents from losing their homes to tax foreclosure or facing eviction. Once they are safely and securely housed, we work to connect them to opportunities to build wealth and access greater economic opportunity. Simultaneously, we build on this strategy with community-wide investments in public spaces and arts & culture that bring people together and strengthen social bonds. And we do it all with the deep collaboration and support of partner organizations that share our unwavering passion for Detroit.
