The Mott Foundation, through its Civil Society program, supports efforts to build a vibrant and independent philanthropic and nonprofit sector.

We fund organizations and initiatives that promote effectiveness, accountability, and transparency within the sector; build the capacity of foundations and nonprofit organizations to address local community needs; enhance the sector’s legal, fiscal, research, and policy framework; and ensure an adequate, responsive flow of resources to the nonprofit sector. Our geographic focus includes: Central/Eastern Europe and Russia, South Africa, United States, and select countries internationally, as well as globally.
