DEARBORN, Mich. A Michigan-based philanthropic organization that helps nonprofit groups serving Arab-Americans nationwide has itself received a grant to expand its work.

The Center for Arab American Philanthropy announced Tuesday that $380,000 from the Battle Creek-based W.K. Kellogg Foundation will allow it to reach more people, particularly youth. The grant will help launch a fund that supports low-income children and their families as well as grow its Teen Grantmaking Initiative.

Officials say the Kellogg Foundation has worked with the philanthropy center since its 2005 launch.

The Center for Arab American Philanthropy is a project of Dearborn-based ACCESS, which was founded as the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social
