There's something about Detroit, right? That something is people like you, the resourceful and creative neighbors who work to make positive change in the neighborhoods and communities of Detroit. You have the power to change Detroit block by block.

Across the country ioby leaders have raised more than $4 million in small donations for neighborhood projects, including more than $100,000 right here in Detroit!
