Stewart MottStewart Mott lived the philosophy of the Mott family crest, Spectemur Agendo, or, “Let us be known by our deeds.”  Beginning in 1968, Stewart, the foundation, and its trustees supported this philosophy through strategic grantmaking to progressive organizations focused on systemic change. Recognizing that small grants can build capacity and create fundraising leverage for new organizations, the Foundation provided initial support for many of our grantee organizations, often before larger and more mainstream funding sources were willing to do so.
