|Eligibility:||n addition to funding organizations in the United States, the Foundation’s Civil Society program provides grants to organizations in Central and Eastern Europe, and the former Soviet Union and South Africa. The Foundation’s Environment program primarily funds organizations in the Great Lakes region. It also makes grants to selected organizations internationally that ensure international investment and trade, support sustainable development and reduce environmental degradation. The Flint Area program funds a broad range of projects in Flint, Michigan, and surrounding Genesee County. Outside of these regions, the Foundation accepts requests for funding by invitation only. The Pathways Out of Poverty program funds national demonstration projects in the United States. Each of these four programs has clearly stated guidelines, and we encourage you to review the guidelines before submitting a request for funding.
