2 About the W.K. Kellogg Foundation The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF), founded in 1930 as an independent, private foundation by breakfast cereal pioneer Will Keith Kellogg, is among the largest philanthropic foundations in the United States. Guided by the belief that all children should have an equal opportunity to thrive, WKKF works with communities to create conditions for vulnerable children so they can realize their full potential in school, work and life. The Kellogg Foundation is based in Battle Creek, Mich., and works throughout the United States and internationally, as well as with sovereign tribes. Special emphasis is paid to priority places where there are high concentrations of poverty and where children face significant barriers to success. WKKF priority places in the U.S. are in Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico and New Orleans; and internationally, are in Mexico and Haiti. For more information, visit 2 W.K. KELLOGG FOUNDATION WKKF.ORG/MICHIGAN

3 PARTNERING TO SECURE MICHIGAN S FUTURE The W.K. Kellogg Foundation works to improve the lives of Michigan s vulnerable children for the mutual benefit of our youngest citizens, families, every community and the future success of the state. We want to help today s vulnerable children reshape tomorrow s society in positive, productive ways. Much of what we do helps to improve the areas being measured in the MiDashboard. As Michigan climbs out of its long economic downturn, we are partnering with our grantees and other thought leaders to help restore Michigan as a place that develops educated and healthy children in economically secure families.

4 Educated Kids The W.K. Kellogg Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that all children get the development and education they need as a foundation for independence and success. We seek opportunities to invest in early child development (ages 0 8), leading to reading proficiency by third grade, high school graduation and pathways to quality jobs and careers. A 2011 national study* confirmed that the combined effect of poverty and low reading proficiency puts children in double jeopardy of falling behind in school and not earning a high school diploma. HOW W.K. KELLOGG FOUNDATION FUNDING IS HELPING: Increasing accessibility to preschool education for vulnerable children. Redesigning innovative teacher preparation programs in Michigan s higher education institutions. Creating new schools with curriculums that improve educational outcomes for vulnerable children. *Double Jeopardy: How Third-Grade Reading Skills and Poverty Influence High School Graduation. Donald J.

5 Healthy Kids The W.K. Kellogg Foundation seeks funding opportunities that allow us to make progress in ensuring that all children can grow and thrive by having love, good parenting, high-quality food, physical activity, interaction with nature and access to health care. Statistics show that severe and chronic health problems, including asthma and obesity, interfere with a child s learning. HOW W.K. KELLOGG FOUNDATION FUNDING IS HELPING: Addressing racial disparities in sleeprelated infant deaths and sudden infant death syndrome by focusing on African- American and Native American mothers. Fostering a more engaged and informed public through the work of The Center for Michigan Inc. Expanding farm-to-school programs to increase the number of schools and school districts that purchase food from Michigan farmers. Promoting healthy people and communities by improving access to healthy foods and active living.

6 Family Economic Security The W.K. Kellogg Foundation s goal is to ensure that all families achieve the economic security they need to provide a strong foundation for their children. We support programs that foster quality jobs, careers and entrepreneurship; develop marketable cross-sector workforce skills; and promote postsecondary achievement and financial independence in order to create pathways out of poverty for children. Almost one of every four children in Michigan lives in a family with income below the poverty level, and more than one of every 10 lives in extreme poverty.* HOW W.K. KELLOGG FOUNDATION FUNDING IS HELPING: Supporting the research, analysis, advocacy and civic engagement activities of the State Fiscal Analysis Initiative work and the Prosperity Coalition. Supporting the development of the state s Office of Urban and Metropolitan Initiatives to help low-income families and individuals become more financially stable. Supporting the development of the Michigan Racial Equity Network to create community change that allows abundant opportunities for vulnerable children.
