The Ruth Mott Foundation believes in community vitality, which emerges from safe and vibrant neighborhoods that are home to healthy, financially secure families and children. To achieve this in our community, we are focusing our efforts on north Flint, the area where we believe our efforts can make the biggest difference.
We define north Flint as the city limits on the west, north and east, and Flushing Road/5th Avenue/Longway Boulevard corridor to the south. Please note that we consider unsolicited proposals only for projects that serve north Flint residents. Click here to view a larger version of the north Flint map.

If you are not already working with a program officer, call the foundation office at (810) 233-0170 so we can put you in touch with a member of our program team.
