East Harlem Employment Service's STRIVE program provides employment training, placement, and support to inner-city residents seeking private sector jobs. STRIVE prepares participants for the workforce through a demanding three-week workshop which focuses on the attitudinal prerequisites for successful entry-level employment. Replication of the STRIVE program in Flint is one of three grants in the Flint Workforce Development cluster.
This grant will provide funding to the Greater Flint Health Coalition to implement the Flint Healthcare Sector Initiative. The purpose of the initiative is to create sustainable employment and promote career advancement for low-income Flint residents by working with health industry employers to restructure their hiring, retention, and promotional practices for entry-level healthcare employees. The Greater Flint Health Coalition will continue to work closely with the National Economic Development and Law Center, who developed this project with a three-year research and planning grant from the Mott Foundation.
This grant provides general purposes support to the Foundation Center, a national organization that collects, analyzes, and publishes information on foundations and philanthropy. The center operates five regional offices and a network of over 450 funding information centers throughout the country. It provides training and information resources for grantseeking organizations and individuals. Its databases contain profiles of more than 140,000 grantmakers and more than 3.8 million grants around the world. The center also produces and disseminates research on foundations and strategic communications that promote public understanding of philanthropy. Its strategic priorities for 2016-2017 are to: 1) connect nonprofits to the resources they need to thrive; 2) empower donors with knowledge tools they need to be more strategic; 3) build the global data platform for philanthropy; 4) communicate philanthropy's contribution to making a better world; 5) encourage greater transparency; and 6) ensure that technology provides a strong foundation for the center's work.
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.
