Stewart R. Mott Foundation
DescriptionThe Foundation was founded by Mott, whose father was the largest stockholder of General Motors. The Foundation seeks to change public policy to address the issues of nuclear armament and overpopulation. It also supports organizations that are exposing government corruption and that protect constitutional rights. Grants are awarded in the following areas: peace, arms control, and foreign policy; population issues and reproductive rights; government reform and public policy; and civil rights and civil liberties. Grants are usually awarded for general support of the organization. Preference is given to organizations with a national focus in the United States. The Foundation is currently in “spend down mode” and while grant applications are accepted from first-time grant seekers, most of the grants are awarded to existing grantees. Additional information including an online application form can be found on the Web site.
