About this grant

Since its inception in 1996, with significant support from the Mott Foundation, Freshwater Future has provided over $4.7 million through 1,260 grants for capacity building and technical support to groups working to protect and restore the waters of the region. With prior Mott support, the grantee worked with a communications consulting firm and together they provided technical support to organizations active in the Great Lakes basin to strengthen their communications capacity. With renewed support, the grantee will continue the arrangement with the consulting firm, expand the pool of organizations receiving direct technical support and continue to provide training and tools to other organizations to more effectively utilize communications to advance organizational objectives.
