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.

Applying a wellness lens across all their programming, the Aquinas Center aims to better serve their community by attending to the mind, body, and spirit.
Combatting exclusionary rhetoric that “others” – immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers – face, and changing national policies that exacerbate fear, which leads to increased rates of anxiety, depression, ulcers, migraines, and more is a key component of Aquinas Center’s work. The Mind, Body, Spirit, and Space Initiative will deepen and expand wellness components across Aquinas Center programs and enhance how their physical space expresses compassion. The initiative will engage the approximately 550 adult language learners, senior citizens, children and youth, and program staff who come through the Center’s doors each week. The Mind, Body, Spirit, and Space Initiative will touch their lives in real and meaningful ways.
