Good organizations in Detroit to donate to

I'd like to make a birthday donation for my mother that supports civic enhancement issues in Detroit (historic preservation, greenbelt development for example) - what organization would make good use of my donation?

My mom has a big birthday coming up this week & instead of buying something she may not use, I'm thinking donation. She grew up in Detriot during the Golden Years & has a huge amount of hometown pride/sadness about its more recent history. So I'd like to donate to a group there in her name. Anybody closer to the ground there, who's doing good work there to preserve/restore the community? I can't ask my relatives there for suggestions because the secret would get blabbed and back to her right away.
