The Kresge Foundation is a private, national foundation based in Detroit was established since 1924 by Sebastian Spering Kresge.
The foundation supports seven specifically defined programs: Arts and Culture, Community Development, Detroit, Education, Health, and Human Services. They partner with those organizations and individuals commited to the needs of poor people and communities.
The hallmark of their work as a foundation is creating opportunities for low-income people.
A Gilesgate-based shop and community facility, Hexham’s Core Music, launches a separate workshop where up to six people will be trained how to repair guitars and make ukuleles. The European Social Fund grant supported the project and has secured funds through the County Durham Communication Foundation to equip the workshop in Burn Lane.
