The Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan has supported the arts since its founding. For decades, we have partnered and collaborated with organizations of all sizes, from large institutions that are frequently in the public eye, to hyperlocal projects with only a handful of people.
We work with donors and funders who want to make a permanent positive impact to find the best way to donate their assets toward projects in our region that align with their values.
Art doesn’t just belong in museums or concert halls. It belongs in the public sphere—in parks and under overpasses, on the sides of buildings and in libraries and everywhere in between.
The arts play a central role in supporting human wellbeing. All over the world, people turn to the arts as a means of escape, a source of comfort, and a platform to advocate for social change. Put simply, art is essential for mental and emotional health and that’s why we support arts and culture in southeast Michigan.
