The Ruth Mott Foundation believes in the power of the arts to bring people together to explore and address community issues and to fund creative new ways to do that. Over its ten year history, the Foundation has focused its grant funding in Arts and Culture, Health Promotion and Beautification.
A Focus on Community Arts and Culture
Community arts and culture offer meaningful and accessible ways for a wide range of Genesee County residents of all ages to take part in creative experiences and to connect with each other and the community. Community arts and culture programs seek to engage residents on issues that matter in their daily lives through education, dialogue, and action. They provide avenues to address serious social issues in productive new ways, give voice to those who are often silent, celebrate our diversity and unite us through a shared sense of community.
