Detroit Ledger

In response to our discussion on Tuesday about potential collective projects on Detroit, I wanted to share this website. It is currently collecting information about philanthropic donations to the city of Detroit’s many non-profits. The in-progress, public spreadsheet displays the foundation, the grantor, the grantee, and the amount donated.
