About this grant

Since 1996, Freshwater Future has provided over $5 million in almost 1,300 grants for capacity building and technical assistance to groups working to protect and restore water in the Great Lakes region. With prior Mott Foundation support, the grantee worked with a communications consulting firm to provide technical support to organizations active in the Great Lakes basin to strengthen their communications capacity. With renewed support, Freshwater Future will continue working with a consulting firm, expand the pool of organizations receiving direct technical support and provide training and tools to other organizations to utilize communications to advance their organizational priorities more effectively.
