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.

Catherine Williams

Board Chair


Kate has served on the Board of Trustees for the Scattergood Foundation since 2013.  Kate is an attorney with expertise advising and supporting organizations in the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors, and she currently serves as Assistant General Counsel for Merakey (formerly NHS), one of the largest nonprofit providers of education, behavioral health and developmental services for individuals and communities across the county.  Kate’s interest in and dedication to supporting and improving access to high quality behavioral health services was inspired through her early academic study of emerging mental health courts and an internship on the forensic inpatient unit at St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington D.C.  Throughout her legal career, Kate has remained focused on behavioral health through select graduate coursework, a clinical internship at Friends Hospital, and through previous legal experience advising organizations in the health and human services sectors.  In addition to her work with the Scattergood Foundation, Kate serves as Chair of the Governing Board of Friends Hospital and she is an active volunteer at Germantown Friends School.  Kate is a graduate of Trinity College and she received her J.D. from Temple University.
