The Mott Foundation funds grants in the United States and, on a limited geographic basis, internationally. While the Foundation is open to new ideas and projects, funding for unsolicited requests is very limited. The first step for submitting a funding request is to complete a letter of inquiry (LOI) form. The LOI will help program staff determine the relevance of the proposed project to the Foundation’s programs and provide advice on whether to submit a full proposal. Programs include: Civil Society; Education; Environment; and Flint Area.
