The Corktown Area Fund supports neighborhood improvement activities in three distinct Detroit communities: Corktown, North Corktown, and Hubbard Richard.
The purpose of the Corktown Area Fund is to support neighborhood improvement activities in three distinct Detroit communities: Corktown, North Corktown, and Hubbard Richard.
This is a broad yet competitive fund, which supports projects of organizations that provide services and experiences to residents of those three communities.
As the Fund makes its first round of grants in 2022, grants will vary in amount, but will range from $2,500 to $10,000. Proposals should reflect the broad range of grantmaking that the Community Foundation is involved in: community and economic development, arts and culture, environmental and public space, social and human services, public health, and much more.
Who does this fund serve?
Awards will be made to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations located in the above-mentioned communities or an organization that has a fiscal sponsorship agreement with a 501(c)(3). Schools and government entities are also eligible to apply.
In rare circumstances, organizations not located within the three communities but serving their residents may also be considered. View the map on the right to see the area served.
