Hello grantees! Thank you for collaborating with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to create lasting, transformational change for children.
Your organization’s work matters! Beyond grant resources, it requires the commitment, insight, creativity and talents of many contributors. We are eager to help your efforts be as impactful as possible. We also care about the experiences you have as you work with our team.
To help, we assembled some information and resources on the tabs that follow.
At the core of our relationships with grantees is a deep commitment to listen to, learn from and care about the experiences you have with every member of our Kellogg Foundation team throughout your grant.
We make five commitments to our grantees:
- Be transparent, respectful, open and honest.
- Be responsive and provide timely answers to questions throughout a grant.
- Be thoughtful about the level of information and data requested.
- Build trust and foster common purpose and benefit to achieve shared outcomes for children.
- Provide opportunities to give feedback—and use that feedback to make continuous improvements.
Throughout your grant, you will receive feedback surveys that ask about your experiences. Please share open, honest feedback with us so we learn what’s working and where we need to improve.
As a grantee, you probably already know a bit about the Kellogg Foundation.
But, if you or members of your team want to learn more, we recommend our Who We Are and Priorities pages to give you sense of our mission, history and grantmaking priorities. We also encourage you to visit our DNA page, which details how the foundation’s commitments to advancing racial equity and racial healing, to developing leaders and to authentically engaging communities are part of everything we do, and everything we fund.
Racial Equity in Governance and Management
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation considers the governance and management of its grantee organizations to be determining factors for effectiveness and impact. We encourage grantee organizations to have, or be working toward, a composition of board and senior staff that is diverse and reflective of the racial and ethnic demographics of the children, families and communities they serve.
Announcing Your Grant
We are strong believers in the power of strategic communications as part of any project. To help you harness that power, download these important guidelines for using the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s name and for writing a news release to announce your grant.
