(02/17/14) - The General Motors Foundation is awarding $1 million in grants to three Detroit charities in honor of the automaker's former chief executive.

The money will go to a soup kitchen, Habitat for Humanity and a group that provides services to the homeless.

Akerson was chairman and CEO for more than three years before retiring from the company last month.
