We fund organizations and projects which disrupt our current behavioral health space and create impact at the individual, organizational, and societal levels.
Our annual $25,000 prize is awarded to a cutting-edge idea that holds the potential to catalyze progress in behavioral health.
Our participatory grantmaking alters the traditional process of philanthropic giving by empowering service providers and community-based organizations to define the strategy around a specific issue area or population.
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.

risk-taking | noun
: the act or fact of doing something that involves danger or risk in order to achieve a goal
The Foundation believes to advance the behavioral health system, we must take risks, initiate new ideas, disrupt the current system, and empower decision-makers to create reform.
The Same Day Work and Pay Program took risks as a pilot program dedicated to show the benefit of giving people a chance. The Think Bigger, Do Good Policy Paper Series had a new addition in July with Michael Hogan’s follow-up paper on suggestions to help prevent youth suicide, urging national policymakers to take a risk for this country’s youth. Open Source Wellness, 2019 Innovation Award winner, takes risk with their model to address both physical and mental health with behavioral prescriptions.
Risk-taking is a valuable asset to the work we do, and we encourage everyone to think about what risks they’re taking to get the work done. Throughout the month of August we will be sharing more about our risk-taking programs and partners.
