Post-Bankruptcy Detroit: Where Do We Go Now?
Detroit, in its grit and glory, is forging a new dynamism – through connection and cooperation. New players complement the tried and true; new possibilities offer a frank hope. There are new styles of decision-making, too, that are inclusive and distributed. The Kresge Foundation’s President Rip Rapson will talk about the extraordinary circumstances associated with the city’s bankruptcy, which propelled philanthropy in unexpected directions. These new approaches represent the next generation of philanthropy for Kresge and for the entire sector. It arises from Kresge’s aspiration to effect meaningful change in society, shaped and tested by their efforts in Detroit.
