A New York investment banking company has donated $1 million to a fund designed to help low-income Detroit residents pay their water bills and avoid shutoffs that drew United Nations attention to the city last fall.

The Heat and Warmth Fund announced Sunday that Manhattan-based Miller Buckfire & Co. made the largest gift the nonprofit group ever received from anyone other than a utility company.
