FROM OUR CHAIR

FROM OUR PRESIDENT

A COMMITMENT TO WORKING WITH COMMUNITY

Dear Friends,

The story of north Flint isn’t one story at all, but really thousands of them—one for every determined resident who plants seeds of tenacity, harmony, and resilience.

Contained in this report on the Ruth Mott Foundation’s 2017-18 activities are just a few of these stories of hope and opportunity: community gardens sprouting where blight once ruled; a shuttered elementary school given new life and purpose; and dedicated adults committed to mentoring the next generation of leaders.

These are north Flint’s stories of inspirational work and the huge strides being made to ensure residents can create opportunities to contribute and thrive, our goal for the Ruth Mott Foundation’s north Flint place-based philanthropy. And as our grantmaking has grown in north Flint, so too have the projects and programs delivered on site and in the community by our expert staff at Applewood, who provide learning opportunities and technical assistance in areas such as horticulture and historic preservation.

To stay informed of our activities, including Applewood, throughout the year, sign up for our newsletter by emailing rmf@ruthmott.org or follow us on social media. As always, we’re privileged to be a partner in this important work and to help share these stories. We are inspired every day by residents who are doing incredible things to strengthen and improve Flint’s neighborhoods.

Sincerely,

Maryanne Mott

Board Chair

Raquel Thueme

President
