Six black-led organizations win $300,000 in funding for youth programs in Detroit

Six nascent nonprofits and community organizations will divide $300,000 in funding to further their missions in serving children of Detroit.

The My Brother’s Keeper Detroit Innovation Challenge will award $50,000 to each organization as part of an overall initiative to distribute funding to programs that would not normally meet philanthropic funding qualifications. The funding target organizations which are relatively new and do not have established funding streams or 501(c)3 status, but are working toward those goals.


Tell us your Detroit love story

Last year, we here at The Neighborhoods photographed several couples who met in Detroit, or who had their first date in Detroit. This year, we’re back for a second round of love stories.

Did you meet your significant other somewhere in the city? Tell us your story, and we’ll photograph you for our series at that very spot. Or, if your first date was somewhere in town, we’ll take you there, too.

Was it ice cream at the walk-up Dairy Queen? Maybe in the church choir? The cafeteria at high school? Take us to where it all began.
