Kellogg donates $3.8M in grants to Miss. groups

JACKSON, Miss. — Mississippi community organizations that work to advance racial equity and racial healing for young men of color will receive $3.8 million in grants from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation

The foundation says in a news release that the grants range from $60,000 to $150,000 over three years. Money will go to 26 community organizations in Mississippi.

Foundations executive vice president La June Montgomery Tabron says the community organizations are working to change the conditions young men of color in Mississippi face by building a comprehensive network of support from birth into adulthood, developing their educational, emotional, physical and economic potential.

She says the grants align with the foundation's commitments to improve the health, education and financial stability of vulnerable children and their families.
