Direct Charitable Activities

Over the past 10 years, the Ruth Mott Foundation paid out between $6 million and $9 million annually, of which $4 million to $7 million annually was paid in grants to external organizations to help strengthen neighborhoods and create opportunities for residents to thrive in Flint. The balance, roughly $2 million a year, has been paid for a foundation administered program, Applewood. As a foundation administered program, Applewood is open to the public free of charge, and is a Michigan Historic Landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Sites. The estate’s beautiful surroundings weave together the Mott family’s past and present dedication to serving the needs of the community. In that tradition, the Ruth Mott Foundation offers its resident expertise in grantmaking, horticulture, history, and other areas to benefit the community; provides public garden and house tours; conducts workshops, trainings, field trips, education programs, and convenings; and hosts public events. In 2016, during its centennial celebration, Applewood served 44,680 visitors and participants, an increase from 20,710 in 2015. The costs associated with these expenditures are reported as direct charitable activities.
