Support Leadership Detroit

The impact of Leadership Detroit is evident in the strength of lasting relationships that continue far beyond graduation. The community efforts to identity and nominate leaders with diverse backgrounds and experiences to participate in Leadership Detroit is critical to the ongoing success of the program.

As we head into the program’s 42nd year fostering leadership in the region, we all share in the ongoing work of upholding the legacy of Leadership Detroit. This can be done through annual giving or by attending the Fall Legacy Celebration.


Annual Giving Your contribution to this program is instrumental to the effort to cultivate the leadership that has made Detroit one of the best places to live and work. Your support of Leadership Detroit is tax deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense or as a charitable gift. Sign up to support Leadership Detroit through annual giving here.


Fall Legacy Celebration

Another way to show your support for Leadership Detroit is to attend the Fall Legacy Celebration each October. This annual event allows alumni to enjoy an evening of music and networking at one of Detroit’s premier jazz clubs, Cliff Bell’s. A portion of ticket sales go towards supporting scholarships for future Leadership Detroit class members.

Your participation in both of these efforts will help expand the reach and depth of Leadership Detroit by:

  • Increasing our ability to provide much-needed scholarship dollars to ensure that community leaders, small business leaders, and entrepreneurs continue to participate in Leadership Detroit.
  • Expanding the number of networking opportunities and events to support Leadership Detroit’s growing cohort of graduates.
  • Improving access to Leadership Detroit’s graduate network through an online directory that allows graduates to resource one another.
  • Developing and supporting a platform to identify and promote leadership community engagement opportunities for Leadership Detroit graduates.
