Annual Report / 2016 The Steelcase Foundation
"By the Numbers" The 2016 annual report uses big, bold numbers to share the “why” behind the foundation’s giving decisions. …Because only 50% of young people are still interested in science by the time they reach 8th grade. …Because drug overdoses in Michigan have increased by 450% in the last two decades. …Because 20% of African-American men in metro Grand Rapids are unemployed, compared to 3.3% of the general population. Numbers help us understand the scope of inequity in our communities. And they compel action. The Steelcase Foundation delivered more than $4 million in grants in 2016 to innovative programs that are working hard to crunch these numbers down in size.
