HP Taxi

As the Heidelberg Project (HP) embarks on a new vision, the support and partnership of a five-year capacity building grant from the Max M. and Marjorie Fisher Foundation will make our strides that much stronger!

During a time when arts and culture are more vital than ever, the Fisher Foundation set out to address demand for the growth and sustainability of local arts organizations, and the HP is one of them. With the intention to transform the world renowned project site into a larger arts center for and by the community and expand programming in supplemental K12 education and community development, the HP is well poised to fully utilize the support. Leveraging this capacity building partnership will be the implementation of a three-year strategic organizational plan beginning in January 2018 and developed by the talent and expertise of select HP board members, Candace Jackson and Jules Polk.

The Max M. and Marjorie Foundation Capacity Building Initiative will take place beginning January 2018 through to the end of 2022, and will include evaluation support by Detroit-based firm JFM Consulting Group.
