Blood and Oil
The Detroit Renaissance Foundation is an entirely unique organization, at least in North America. Its coordination, and eventual domination, of virtually all philanthropic activity in the city has made it both extremely powerful and extremely wealthy, making it a prime model for developmental charities throughout the third world. Unlike its children, however, the Renaissance has kept its hands spotlessly clean for almost 40 years. This isn’t to say they don’t play politics, they’ve gotten extremely good at that, only that they don’t indulge corruption in monetary form. This unusual stance means that only a select few Kindred have mastered the art of manipulating them, including Jason Endagre and most recently Jeremy Graves.
