Welcome to the Stewart R. Mott Foundation, formerly known as the Stewart R. Mott Charitable Trust.
We are an innovative foundation focused on small, strategic grant-making.
The Stewart R. Mott Charitable Trust and the Fund for Constitutional Government suffered the loss of our president and founder, Stewart Rawlings Mott, on Thursday, June 12, 2008 to a year-long battle with terminal cancer. The Trust, FCG, Stewart’s family and Stewart’s friends have received a tremendous response of love and support since Stewart’s passing, and we thank everyone for their sincere sympathy. We also would like to extend our own heartfelt condolences to those who will mourn with us. Stewart touched many hearts during his lifetime and through his works. Our thoughts are with you all.

Stewart lived the philosophy of the Mott family crest, Spectemur Agendo, or, “Let us be known by our deeds.” He will be remembered for his great sense of humor, his great generosity and his great deeds as a philanthropist and a friend. His impact in all regards will last long after he is gone. Thank you, Stewart. We will miss you.
