Max M. & Marjorie S. Fisher Foundation
The Foundation’s mission is to enrich humanity by strengthening and empowering children and families in need. Priority is given to supporting the needs of and ensuring the future of the Jewish people and respecting its legacy and commitment to the Detroit, Mich., community. Areas of critical importance for the Foundation include education, arts and culture, and health with particular attention to HIV/AIDS. Grants to ensure the future of the Jewish people support the education of the most at-risk youth in Israel with a priority given to “olim” and those families in greatest need. The Foundation also seeks to strengthen the culture of tzedakah within the broader Jewish communal enterprise through supporting efforts to cultivate new philanthropic leaders and teaching children the value of tikkun olam (repairing the world). It also works to strengthen the Jewish community in Detroit by fostering an increased connection that children and families feel to their Jewish identity and Israel through educational and direct experience opportunities. The Foundation’s commitments to Detroit support early childhood education, preparing students for college/career opportunities; arts programs; health programs throughout the prenatal through career educational continuum.
