About this grant

The Great Lakes Islands Alliance — a project of the Stewardship Network — is a bi-national, voluntary collaborative network consisting of nearly 200 island leaders from 20 islands in the Great Lakes region. With previous Mott Foundation support, the grantee was able to hire a project manager, expand its membership and increase its impact in these off-shore communities to protect and conserve natural environments on islands. With renewed support, the grantee will be able to strengthen the connections and communications among and between islands and islanders. Members will continue to seek and implement island-appropriate solutions to an array of environmental challenges, from rising lake levels to climate resiliency to water pollution, while advancing stewardship of island natural resources.
