The mission of the Max M. & Marjorie S. Fisher Foundation is to enrich humanity by strengthening and empowering children and families in need. While remaining flexible in our approach, we give priority to: Providing for the needs of and ensuring the future of the Jewish people and Respecting our legacy and commitment to the Detroit community. Areas of critical importance include education, arts & culture and health with particular attention to HIV/AIDS.
In the Jewish tradition of tzedakah, the Foundation works to repair the world (tikkun olam) in partnership with organizations and volunteers who share our mission.
From their first date at the London Chop House in Detroit, Marjorie and Max were partners in life, love, family and philanthropy. Married for 52 years, Marjorie was a quiet partner in the family's giving. She would often encourage Max in critical moments of decision saying 'We have to give more.'
