Our focus areas
We invest in the artists and educators, entrepreneurs and innovative leaders who are shaping the future of Southeast Michigan, Israel, and the Jewish community.
In Detroit and across Southeast Michigan, the William Davidson Foundation is working with our grantees and other partners to expand the number of good jobs and enhance our collection of great places. Together we see these as essential ingredients for a growing, connected community.
The William Davidson Foundation is working with our grantees and other partners to educate and empower Jews in ways that will help them build meaningful lives infused with Jewish values and a deep sense of belonging and commitment to Jewish peoplehood and Israel.
Israel is the spiritual and cultural home for the Jewish people worldwide, and the William Davidson Foundation is committed to promoting Israel’s security, prosperity, and vibrancy as a Jewish and democratic state with meaningful ties to the diaspora.
