Welcome to Birth Detroit’s

Capital Campaign


We are working to raise a total of $4 million: $1.5 million to buy land and build, and  $2.5 million for the first two years of operations. We bought the land. We are ready to build! We will break ground and open in 2023. Beyond this initial capital, our operating model will generate revenue to support future sustainability.


We are over 50% of the way there. With your help, we can make it to our $4 million goal.

Detroit Needs a Birth Center

We are raising capital to open the first Black-led birth center in Detroit, Michigan. This birth center will provide safe, quality, loving care through pregnancy, birth and beyond to the Detroit community. Led by Black-women and shaped by community voices, Birth Detroit will provide loving maternal and infant health in our communities. It will also be a first of its kind in our country, operating with a shared leadership model and community organizing approach that is rooted in deep equity and meaningful partnerships.

Lead with Us.

I want to make a one-time gift to the capital campaign.

I am interested in making a campaign pledge paid out in installments.

donor-advised fund gifts

What is a donor-advised fund?

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your favorite charities. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.


How does it work?

  • Establish your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax-deductible donation to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program

  • Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets (any investment growth is tax-free)

  • Recommend grants to qualified public charities of your choice
