In service of our mission, the Detroit Children’s Fund has a focused investment strategy: We Invest in Quality. We invest in proven school models, high-potential talent and equitable policies and practices to create access to more quality schools for Detroit children. Our investments exist along a continuum, from creating the right conditions for success and seeding promising ideas to scaling what works.
