GRANTS FOR CHURCHES IN AFRICA
Funding Resources for Programs in South Africa
CHARLES STEWART MOTT FOUNDATION
Established in 1926 by industrialist Charles Stewart Mott, the Flint, Michigan-based Mott Foundation makes grants in the United States and, on a limited geographic basis, internationally, in four broad program areas: civil society, the environment, Flint, and poverty. These programs, in turn, are divided into more specific areas: the civil society program focuses on the United States, South Africa, Central/Eastern Europe, Russia, and the newly created Republics; the environment program is devoted to reform of international lending and trade policies, prevention of toxic pollution, protection of the Great Lakes ecosystem, and special initiatives. 1200 Mott Foundation Building Flint, Michigan 48502-1851 Phone: (810) 238-5651 Fax: (810) 766-1753
