The History of Spirit of Giving
The Franklin-Wright Settlements, Inc.’s Spirit of Giving Awards Dinner Gala and Fundraiser was started as a method of honoring the generous donations of time, talent, and financial resources by those who remain committed to seeing Franklin-Wright Settlements fulfill its mission to help children, families and seniors to have a higher quality of life. Over the last 137 years, Franklin-Wright Settlements has enlisted the service of thousands of volunteers to help hundreds of thousands of people in need. We value the hard work and dedication of our donors, volunteers, staff, and Board of Trustees. Their unique contributions have made a huge difference in the lives of so many.
The Franklin-Wright Settlements’ Spirit of Giving Award Dinner Gala and Fundraiser has grown to become one of Detroit’s premier events. The proceeds raised from this evening allow Franklin-Wright Settlements to continue providing world class service in areas which include After-School Enrichment Program, a Teen Center for junior and high school students and a Summer Enrichment Program which allows children to keep pace academically and culturally during summer recess.
At this annual gala, we pay tribute to local heroes for their outstanding commitment to excellence, innovation and community service. We honor those with a demonstrated passion for living a life of service and sacrifice.
Collective sharing and sacrifice are the cornerstones of our ongoing efforts to eliminate suffering. Tonight we celebrate a select few who have shown that it truly is better to give than receive. As we applaud these outstanding role models our hope is that their proven Spirit of Giving is one which engulfs us all.
