Foundation grantmaking focuses on four major program areas.
These programs touch upon a number of major issues.
Each grantmaking program also works within clearly stated geographic parameters or regions.

The BASIC South Initiative project is an effort to initiate a network of nongovernmental organizations from emerging economies, like Brazil and China. This new network will address financing for renewable and low-carbon energy in developing countries as well as broad sustainable development goals that emerging economies might promote. This grant increase will support civil society organization meetings parallel to the BRICS Summit to be held in Durban, South Africa.
The Mott Foundation’s Environment program supports non-governmental groups (NGOs) working nationally and globally to change policies and practices of international trade and financial institutions so the environment is protected and people’s standard of living is not adversely affected by projects supported by these institutions.
Some grants made through our Environment program’s interest in improving land use decisionmaking in Michigan, as well as our three other programs — Civil Society, Flint Area, and Pathways Out of Poverty — support sustainable development projects. Such projects balance economic growth, environmental protection and human well-being.
