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.

Our partners at Mental Health for Us are bringing together our community to talk about some of the most pressing issues facing our nation today: mental health and addiction. Now more than ever, it is crucial that we unite for change. This event, featuring a town hall with former U.S. Representative Patrick J. Kennedy and other advocates, will provide the tools, training, and education you need to be an effective voice for these issues throughout the 2020 election.
Join us in taking a stance for these important issues. Watch the livestream of the event and comment using #MentalHealth4US.
