Charles Stewart Mott (1875–1973) was an engineer, entrepreneur, public servant and philanthropist who dedicated much of his life, and wealth, to helping others. Mr. Mott’s GM shares made him a wealthy man, and he parlayed his fortune into a life of public service and philanthropy. He served three terms as mayor of Flint, during which time he led efforts to pave the city’s dirt roads and build a modern sewer system. In 1926, he established the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation for philanthropic, charitable and educational purposes. The Foundation affirmed Mr. Mott’s vision of a world in which every person was in partnership with the rest of the human race, and where each individual’s quality of life is connected to the well-being of the community — locally and globally.
The C.S. Mott Children's Hospital is a pediatric hospital through the University of Michigan Health System in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We are proud to announce that as of last week, kids who are fighting cancer at C.S. Mott will be sleeping on Sheets From Home too! We would like to send a very special THANK YOU to Lorrie Mamlin for making this all possible!
