We are pleased to present the Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Family Foundation Annual Report. Our mission is to advance an environmentally healthy and culturally vibrant metropolitan Detroit and flourishing Great Lakes ecosystem. The pages of this report chronicle 10 years of working to achieve this mission, walking alongside all of you as agents of change.
The report also launches our new five-year strategic plan, which will serve as our north star, guiding us for the near-term. While the program areas in the five-year plan are the same, our focus within those areas will now shift to devote more attention to addressing more specific problems and opportunities and being more vigilant about tracking our progress. All the while our focus will be on supporting our grantees’ priorities and goals.
