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’ve commissioned a series of papers on behavioral health issues that aim to influence ongoing deliberations around policy reform.
The Scattergood Foundation has partnered with the Peg’s Foundation, Patrick P. Lee Foundation, and Peter and Elizabeth Tower Foundation to commission a series of solution oriented papers discussing some of the most pressing behavioral health policy issues. The policy papers are informed by a consortium of experts in mental health and addictions care including both strategic and tactical experts, who provide input on prioritization of topics and guidance on how to craft papers to promote effective advocacy. The two foundations believethat now more than ever, philanthropic support in the area of policy is critical to improving the health outcomes for all.
