We support programs around the world that protect communities and the ecosystems upon which they depend.

How it Works

We partner with groups in North America and around the world to advance the cause of sustainability.

For more than three 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.

When the environment is healthy, we all benefit.
