In 2009, a group of friends had an idea while wondering how to stay connected in the midst of all the changes life brings. Forced to move away from Michigan due to a struggling economy, our founders created Born and Raised Detroit Foundation in order to give back to where they came from. Who doesn't like to rep their hometown....where they were truly Born and Raised? This group of passionate individuals found a way to stay connected not only to each other, but to their beloved hometown—Detroit.
Born & Raised Detroit Foundation 501(c)(3) supports initiatives that contribute to building a stronger community and positive way of life for the youth of Detroit. We believe that an inspired, educated, and creative youth is the key to our city’s progression. We are 100% volunteer and 100% of proceeds go to empowering the upcoming generation of young Detroiters.
