Grantmaking

We fund organizations and projects which disrupt our current behavioral health space and create impact at the individual, organizational, and societal levels.

Innovation Award

Our annual $25,000 prize is awarded to a cutting-edge idea that holds the potential to catalyze progress in behavioral health.

Community Fund for Wellness

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.

Program Related Investments

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.

Trauma Informed Community Development

Grantee

Impact Services Corporation and New Kensington CDC (NKCDC) propose to launch a model for community development that addresses the over- arching issue of community-based trauma in the neighborhood of Kensington, its effects on individual residents, and the community as a whole.

About

Experts have identified human connection and access to resources as two significant factors in building an individual’s capacity to overcome adversity and promote stability. As part of LISC’s Sustainable Communities Initiative, Impact Services Corporation and New Kensington CDC (NKCDC) propose to launch a model for community development that addresses the over- arching issue of community-based trauma in the neighborhood of Kensington, its effects on individual residents, and the community as a whole. Through promoting and establishing healthy micro-communities at the block level, this model aims to de-escalate stress, build social cohesion and foster community efficacy and resiliency.
