This grant supports the general purposes of the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers, a national network of 34 geographically organized regional associations of grantmakers that collectively represent more than 5,500 participating organizations. The forum facilitates effective philanthropy by delivering educational programming and resources, convening foundations, communicating the value of philanthropy, and sustaining and supporting regional grantmaker associations. Some of the forum's recent activities include co-organizing the yearly Foundations on the Hill; providing information and educational opportunities for members (annual conference, webinars, monthly policy round robin calls, biweekly newsletters, redesigned Web site, grantmaker education programming directory); hosting the PolicyWorks for Philanthropy project, and engaging in collaborative partnerships with other infrastructure organizations, including a data partnership with the Foundation Center. Over 2015, the forum will continue and enhance these activities.
This final renewal grant to the Insight Center for Community Economic Development’s trade association will assist the grantee in continuing to improve employment opportunities for low-income families and communities. The Mott Foundation made the initial grant to support the conceptualization and formation of the National Network of Sector Partners in 1999 and it has served as a successful model for workforce development.
This renewal grant will provide partial funding to the Greater Flint Health Coalition for the Flint Healthcare Employment Opportunities Program. The goal of the project is to create sustainable employment opportunities and promote career advancement for residents of Flint and Genesee County within the healthcare field. Participants receive industry-focused life skills and career-readiness training, occupational instruction, case management, and supportive services as well as job development assistance. The Greater Flint Health Coalition regularly convenes healthcare sector employers to assess and implement solutions to meet the employment needs of the sector.
The Mott Foundation, through its four grantmaking programs, funds a variety of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and projects throughout the United States, which together receive about three quarters of the Foundation’s grant funds each year.
