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.

Drawing on other cities' successes in offering same day work and pay, Mural Arts and Mental Health Partnerships proposed a mural-making work opportunity for individuals experiencing economic instability.
The Barra Foundation and The Sheller Family Foundation awarded Mural Arts Philadelphia and Mental Health Partnerships grants to initiate a program in Philadelphia. Mural Arts Philadelphia and Mental Health Partnerships proposed a mural-making work opportunity for individuals experiencing economic instability. The opportunity specifically targets participants experiencing economic instability in Center City, Philadelphia. The grant award included support for a set of discovery interviews and the development of a theory of change. This three-month discovery phase, led by The Scattergood Foundation, was used to inform the design, implementation, and evaluation of a “same day work” program in Philadelphia and has resulted in a publicly available report.
