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.

A Master of Science Design Research course with a concentration on health in the designed environment, available to students of the Westphal and the Dornsife School of Public Health at Drexel University.
The Center for Health & the Designed Environment (CHDE) is an interdisciplinary center made up of faculty from Interior Design, Public Health, Science and Technology Studies and Engineering to address complex urban inequities through novel health and design research at Drexel University. The educational arm of CHDE has developed a course in collaboration with the Scattergood Foundation entitled Health and Design Research: Designing with Dignity that was piloted spring 2016. Designing with Dignity examines how Design and Health research informs innovative thinking for behavioral health in underserved communities. This innovative course guides students through an examination of the relation between the built environment, health and behavioral health issues, linking these issues to the over-arching systems. Drexel faculty developed a process of design research and thinking paired with a public health perspective and will be leading a course in the spring semesters of 2017, 2018, and 2019. The course creates rich opportunities for engagement and outcomes in the area of behavioral health innovation.
