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.

Just as the world was preparing for a roaring 2020, COVID-19 entered our lives. When March rolled around, the nationwide shut-down turned our world upside-down. When May came, the murder of George Floyd further uncovered the depths of systemic racism. We went from overactive but routine daily lives to a standstill, being quarantined, and witnessing a reckoning of generations of systemic racism. Work continued from home for some of us. Essential workers became even busier. Education continued from home. Family members became strangers. Protests dominated the news. And businesses suddenly had little or no revenue.
From October – March, the Scattergood Foundation has partnered with PIDC and Spectrum Health Services to host “Is It Just Me?” Paying Attention to Your Mental Health During the Time of COVID-19 and Civil Unrest, a series of monthly webinars that address specific wellness issues with a discussion led by healthcare professionals.
Session 2: Stress of Structural Racism & Civil Unrest
Presenter: Dr. Frank Johnson @ Merakey
Date: November 17, 2020
Time: 9:00am EST
How we feel is real and more common than we’d like to admit, especially for business owners and practitioners trying to juggle work, employees, family, and constantly changing systems. Join us as we explore the impact of the pandemic and civil unrest on our health and gain insights on managing our emotional, mental and behavioral wellbeing.
