2014 Annual Report | Inspiring change: portraits of partnership

December 23, 2015

For nearly nine decades, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation has been guided by our founder’s strongly held belief that every person exists in a kind of informal partnership with his or her community. Our latest annual report explores the power of such intimate collaboration, illustrated by four inspiring “portraits” of people who, with the help of Mott grantmaking, have engaged with their communities to create positive change.

The report also features a joint message from William S. White, the Foundation’s chairman and CEO, and Mott President Ridgway H. White, who reflect on the value of partnership and the understanding that “no single institution has the knowledge, resources or agility to single-handedly address complex social issues. That power must lay in the collective hands, hearts and minds of people working together, often in new and creative ways, to make good things happen.”
