The Mott Foundation, through each of its four programs — Civil Society, EnvironmentFlint Area and Education — supports nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that promote people’s involvement in decision making processes at the local, state, national and/or global levels.

Through grantmaking approaches, we fund ways to strengthen philanthropy and the nonprofit sector, promote community organizing efforts, support sustainable development projects, and advance economic stability and racial equality.

*Note: This program area previously included support to organizations working in Russia, and such support is detailed in the Foundation's grants database. However, in 2015, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation was included on a list of organizations that the upper house of the Russian parliament recommended designating as “undesirable.” We therefore concluded that the best course of action was to discontinue our support in Russia. See the Foundation’s statement regarding this development for more information.
