We fund organizations and projects which disrupt our current behavioral health space and create impact at the individual, organizational, and societal levels.

Participatory Funds

Our participatory funds alter traditional grantmaking by shifting power
to impacted communities to direct resources and make funding decisions.

Special Grant Programs

We build public and private partnerships to administer grant dollars toward targeted programs.

Program Related Investments

We provide funds at below-market interest rates that can be particularly useful to start, grow, or sustain a program, or when results cannot be achieved with grant dollars alone.

Positioning Statement

At the Scattergood Foundation, we believe major disruption is needed to build a stronger, more effective, compassionate, and inclusive society where behavioral health is central.

We approach our work with humility and a deep awareness of our privilege in philanthropy. We share power responsibly and are unrelenting advocates for practices that advance equity for all. We recognize and challenge the historic and systemic inequalities that disadvantage and marginalize individuals, organizations, and communities. We work in partnership to achieve more than we can do alone.

We THINK profound transformation is needed to improve behavioral health. We initiate new ideas and disrupt the current system to break stereotypes and inspire new dialogue. We stand for enhanced access to prevention, promotion, treatment, and supports. We create space for diverse perspectives to address the structural conditions that shape our ineffective practices.

We DO by demanding more in policy and practice. We listen to and elevate the voice of those who are often unheard. We accelerate improvement in programs, organizations, and systems by building skills in community. We use data and evidence to shed light on not only what is wrong, but what is right.

We SUPPORT diverse agents of change and bring them together. Through our grantmaking and investments, we champion initiatives at the forefront of improving wellbeing and quality of life.

In doing so, we unite a community with a common goal:
shift the paradigm and practice for behavioral health, and recognize the unique spark and basic dignity in every human.

We are the Scattergood Foundation, and we want everyone to
