Mindful Philanthropy

Fiscal Sponsorship

Mindful Philanthropy launches to expand informed giving to mental health, addiction, and community well-being initiatives.


Mindful Philanthropy, the only national resource of its kind, aims to significantly expand philanthropy for mental health, addiction, and community well-being initiatives. It’s goal is to increase high-impact philanthropy by connecting grantmakers and donors to knowledge, funding opportunities, and networks. The nonprofit has identified three primary channels to achieve their goal:

  1. Maximizing donor impact through strategic giving. Mindful Philanthropy connects new and interested donors to subject matter experts and experienced behavioral health funders as they consider high-impact opportunities for funding. When donors see the positive impact of their donations, they are more confident in their giving and more likely to continue supporting these programs.
  2. Increasing overall investment in behavioral health programs. Mindful Philanthropy collaborates with foundations whether they are solely focused on behavioral health or working in adjacent areas like education, poverty alleviation, criminal justice reform, and health equity.
  3. Initiate, develop, and support new programs. Mindful Philanthropy will help initiate and drive interest in promising programs, research and policy initiatives that meet the criteria for high-impact philanthropy set out in “Health in Mind: A Philanthropic Guide for Mental Health and Addiction,” published by the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for High Impact Philanthropy (CHIP).
