Civil Society

We support efforts to increase civic engagement, encourage charitable giving and help communities make positive change.

When people get involved in their communities, things change for the better.

How It Works

Mott supports local efforts to bring about change.

Local communities are where people most directly relate to the social, economic and political processes taking place in their countries, and where they can be most active in shaping them. That’s why our Civil Society grantmaking focuses on building vibrant communities where all people can engage in decision-making that affects their day-to-day lives.

We work with grantees to strengthen the nonprofit sector and expand local philanthropy to be vital vehicles for addressing tough challenges, unlocking local resources and building community leadership.
