Rent parties have a rich history and are based around a very basic concept–helping your neighbors. If you know someone in need, take the initiative to help. We can be as involved as you want us to be.
Make your event a rent party.
A rent party can be anything! It could be a show, a dance party, a poetry reading, an art opening or a dance party. Consider donating a portion of the proceeds to RPD.
Become involved as a business owner.
Consider donating a portion of sales from a special event or dedicating the proceeds of a certain product to Rent Party Detroit.
