We are pleased to share our foundation’s 2017 annual report. Covering one year and $11.3 million in grantmaking, the report showcases people and organizations who are advancing sustainability through work in the environment and the arts. We hope that you share our excitement about their efforts and enjoy viewing the short videos embedded throughout the report.
The report’s cover art, pictured above, is our first commission: a collage by Judy Bowman titled The Sparkling Waters of Detroit. By depicting a girl playing in the clear waters of Belle Isle Beach, the piece captures how people can relate to the Great Lakes. This expression of the human impact of our work is one of the reasons that we believe in the importance of partnering with artists.
