About The Kresge Foundation

The Kresge Foundation is one of the top 20 largest private foundations in the U.S. Our staff of over 100 employees works to expand opportunities in America’s cities for people with low incomes. We do this through grantmaking and social investing nationally in arts and culture, education, environment, health, human services and placed-based work in Detroit, Memphis, New Orleans, and other parts of the country.

Our state-of-the-art headquarters maintains an array of energy-efficient, water-conserving and health-promoting features. The foundation also operates an office in Detroit’s Midtown district.

“My time with The Kresge Foundation was an exceptional career building opportunity. The knowledge and connections I gained will carry with me for long to come. Kresge showed me that at the heart of philanthropy lies the cross section of my passions, something I hope to return to soon. ”
