A note to grantees and friends of the Mott Foundation

To help protect our colleagues and communities, Mott Foundation employees will begin working from home on March 16. We’re taking this step as a proactive measure to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus and the resulting burden on health care systems.

To our grantees, we want to assure you that, as we transition to working remotely, we will do our best to continue our support for you with as little disruption as possible. The work you do to create a more just, equitable and sustainable society is so important every day — and even more so in times of crisis.

We understand the pandemic may have unforeseen impacts on your organizations and staff, as well as your strategies, priorities and progress. Please know that, whenever possible, we will be flexible in helping you respond to such challenges.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to your program officers with questions or concerns. You may reach them via email or by calling their office phones.

As always, we are grateful for your partnership, and we will find our way through this together.

President and CEO
