      Flint foundation gives $3.7M to cultural center

      The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation has awarded grants worth $3.7 million to the Flint Cultural Center's institutions.

      The Flint-based foundation says three grants will benefit the Longway Planetarium, Sloan Museum, The Whiting, and Flint's institutes of arts and music. They are one-year, general operating grants.

      The foundation says its support of the cultural center has totaled about $105 million since 1928.

      The Mott Foundation was established by automotive pioneer C.S. Mott in 1926.
