L.A. Clippers owner Steve Ballmer and his wife ave a plan to combat and end intergenerational poverty in Detroit.
Former Microsoft CEO and now L.A. Clippers owner Steve Ballmer grew up in suburban Detroit. Now he and his wife are planning a homecoming that tells a powerful story. They have a plan — a plan to combat and end intergenerational poverty in Detroit.
The plan starts with the news that he and his wife, Connie, co-founders of their philanthropy, The Ballmer Group, will be opening a Detroit office directing efforts to fight poverty and enhance youth development. This is uplifting news.
With a net worth estimated at $ 32.6 billion, the couple’s announcement and the timing to provide fresh energy, focus, and investment in the futures of our youth, families, and communities couldn’t have been better, coinciding, as it does, with the momentum that has been gathering in Detroit the past couple of years.
