How we bring the community together -
For the past 30 years, Matan B'seter Detroit has been providing discreet assistance to people in our community. This past year alone we have aided over 150 families in many ways. Matan B'seter works to stabilize those around us that are struggling. MBD prides itself on our 99.9% distribution rate, a unique and important metric. All of our workers are volunteers who receive no compensation for their time and efforts. Funds and other means of assistance are distributed in complete anonymity, neither the donors nor the recipients are aware of who receives assistance. Our three gabbaim (trustees) identify and ensure need and implement proper delivery of all assistance.
Day to Day
Water, electric, heat, gas - basics you can't imagine being without. We assist families every month that are struggling to pay these ongoing bills.
Unexpected medical bills, the furnace stops working in the winter, or the car breaks down. Everyone has surprise expenses but not everyone has the means to get past them. Your donations saves the day helping those in our community stay afloat.
Everyone hopes that they come one day. But when you can't pay for bills you can't save for the future. For people that struggle every day, the ability to put together a basic simcha allows them to enjoy and build a future.
As the thought of Yom Tov comes near many cringes as they think of the assistance, financial and others, that they will need. With your support we enable many families to enjoy Yom Tov as well.

A Table at your Simcha
In the past, a table was set at every simcha for the poor to join and partake. With MBD you can continue this great minhag (tradition) while maintaining the dignity of those in need. At your next simcha, let these neighbors eat shamelessly by sponsoring a virtual table.
Extend your family to include those in need in our community!

Since its founding in 1989, Matan B’Seter-Detroit has provided critical financial aid to those in need in the Metropolitan Detroit Jewish Community following the talmudic principal, “The needy of your city take precedence.” A 501(c)(3) charitable organization, Matan B’Seter collects and distributes funds b’seter—anonymously—so that neither the donors nor the recipients know the others’ identities. 100% of the money collected (less printing and postage) is distributed by the three gabbaim (trustees) to the recipients.
