THE FRED A. AND BARBARA M. ERB FAMILY FOUNDATION GIFTS
$1 MILLION TO MOTOWN MUSEUM EXPANSION

Fred and Barbara

DETROIT, September 20, 2017—The Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Family Foundation has gifted $1 million to Motown Museum to assist with the plans for its expansion. Robin R. Terry, CEO and chairwoman of the Board of Trustees of Motown Museum, made the announcement.

“This is a significant gift for the Museum expansion from this wonderful foundation, which carries on the incredible legacies of two community visionaries, Fred and Barbara Erb,” Terry said. “This gift will allow us to expand our educational programming and inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs to harness the power of their own unique talents. We are grateful for the Foundation’s support as our partner joining other leading foundations in bringing the expansion plans to life.”

The Erb Family Foundation $1 million gift to the Motown Museum expansion will support the development of the Education and Community Engagement space on the Museum’s campus, which will serve as an educational and entrepreneurial incubator for young artists, in addition to being home to Motown’s EDU summer camp and other signature Museum programs.

“Our transformational grant program is designed for arts organizations creating a new or revised business model, based on a vision for the future. Building the Education and Community Engagement space on the Museum’s campus will allow the Motown Museum to share the legacy of Motown Records’ entrepreneurship with students, neighborhood residents and community members,” said John Erb, president and chair of the Erb Family Foundation. “Berry Gordy’s vision, drive and determination allowed him to take Motown Records from a family business to an international sensation. I learned these values from working in Erb Lumber, my own family’s business, and am excited that the Museum will continue to share these lessons with young Detroiters.”
