Program areas at Charles Stewart Mott Foundation

Mott afterschool app. The goal of this foundation-administered project (fap) is to leverage technology to improve afterschool programming across the united states. Specifically, this app supports the development of a mobile web application that will provide afterschool professionals and other educators with easy and equitable access to high-quality educational content and professional development resources. The app will curate content from branded partners as well as curricula generated by experts in the field and include a wide range of engaging topics and themes that engage students in learning, such as robotics, sports, and arts. Through the app this project seeks to provide equitable access for all children to the best educational resources available in the afterschool space.
Promoting community Foundation concept and practice. This foundation-administered project (fap) promoted the concept and practice of community foundations in select countries where very few or no community foundations exist. Based on preliminary research, the scope of the project included as main beneficiaries the following countries: ghana, kenya, austria, spain, portugal, argentina, chile, columbia, costa rica, ecuador, peru, and uruguay. The project activities included increasing the knowledge and understanding of the community Foundation concept among local professionals in the field of philanthropy; researching the potential for developing community foundations; and stimulating dialogue among key stakeholders about the value community foundations add to their communities and the local philanthropic field. As a result, over 600 civic leaders, community development practitioners and experts, media and government representatives learned about the community Foundation model.
Advancing afterschool technical assistance. This foundation-administered project (fap) helped to further the Foundation's efforts to provide technical assistance in the areas of afterschool policy, practice and sustainability. Through this fap, the Foundation commissioned a consultant to: 1) promote understanding of major policy or other developments in the afterschool, community learning, and expanded learning fields; 2) develop strategies to advance the statewide afterschool networks; 3) assist in the preparation and implementation of the national network of state afterschool networks' meeting; and 4) participate in meetings and conferences with other education stakeholders.
The Foundation received monies from other charitable organizations under an agreement to regrant these monies to third party grantees for charitable purposes consistent with the Foundation's own grantmaking objectives.
