How it Works

Flint’s well-being is at the root of our hometown grantmaking.

For more than 95 years, Mott has helped people and organizations work together to support and strengthen the community we call home. That deep and lasting commitment has perhaps never been more important than now as we continue to help Flint recover and rise from its water crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic. To those ends, our local grantmaking is helping the community respond to its immediate needs, reinvigorate and build upon the very real progress that was underway before the dual crises occurred, and position itself to meet the tough challenges — and embrace the promising opportunities — that lie ahead.


When individuals partner with their communities, help, hope and opportunity follow.
