Through the Years

A photographic history of the Mott Foundation

Charles Stewart Mott’s belief in the partnership between people and their communities helped to shape the foundation that bears his name and remains the guiding principle of our grantmaking.

Over more than nine decades, the Mott Foundation has sought to advance and strengthen the well-being of all aspects of community — from individuals and families to the institutions that serve them.

We continue to refine and broaden our work to reflect changing conditions in our hometown of Flint, Michigan, and around the world. Through our programs focused on Civil Society, Education, Environment and the Flint Area, we pursue the Mott Foundation’s mission of promoting a just, equitable and sustainable society.
