We support programs around the world that protect communities and the ecosystems upon which they depend.
When the environment is healthy, we all benefit.
We partner with groups in North America and around the world to advance the cause of sustainability.
For more than four decades, the Mott Foundation’s Environment program has supported stewardship of the world’s natural resources. This work has taught us that such grantmaking must seek practical ways to simultaneously build strong economic, environmental and social conditions for all people — in a word, sustainability.
Addressing the Freshwater Challenge
We support efforts to secure sustainable levels of clean water for people and the environment, particularly in the Great Lakes basin.
Transforming Development Finance
We aim to shape international investment policies for energy and infrastructure projects in ways that protect people and the environment in developing nations.
Advancing Climate Change Solutions
We work to increase the use of clean energy in our home state of Michigan and internationally, where more than 1 billion people in developing countries lack access to electricity.
We support unique opportunities to advance environmental protection.
