Reaffirming our roots in Detroit

This week the trustees of the Ford Foundation met in Detroit, the city in which we were established, for the first time since moving to New York in 1946. From local investments in our earliest years to our support for the recent Grand Bargain, we are committed to this city for the long haul.
