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.

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.

Policy Meets Practice

We support local small- and mid-size organizations that are working to advance recommendations outlined in the Think Bigger Do Good Policy Series.

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

Approach All Grants

Overviewssss

We support organizations and programs that incorporate principles of diversity, equity and inclusion and trauma-informed practice. We believe it is critical for organizations and programs to make decisions using both community voice and data. It is our hope that grants we make bring about authentic partnership, collaboration, and systems change to improve emotional health and wellbeing for all.

The Foundation prioritizes supporting organizations that serve and are led by Black, Indigenous, and people of color. The Foundation does request information on the demographics of executive leadership, board members and staff.
