Who We Are

We envision a world in which each individual’s quality of life is connected to the well-being of the community, both locally and globally.

It seems to me that every person, always, is in a kind of informal partnership with his community.

Who We Are

The Capacity for Accomplishment

Charles Stewart Mott was an automotive pioneer, community leader and philanthropist who cared about innovation, a just society, and the strength of communities. Today, Mott Foundation employees in four offices in the U.S., England and South Africa continue his work on a global scale. By supporting nonprofits dedicated to civil society, education, the environment and our hometown of Flint, Michigan, we aim to strengthen what Mr. Mott called “the capacity for accomplishment.”
