We fund organizations and projects which disrupt our current behavioral health space and create impact at the individual, organizational, and societal levels.
We support local grassroots organizations that are working to advance recommendations outlined in the Think Bigger Do Good Policy Series.
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.

Long focused on doing good in the nation’s poorest big city, Philadelphia nonprofits are now examining how their practices and processes have made them complicit — by action or inaction — in the inequities at the heart of the uprising.
Strong voices have emerged from the nonprofit sector during this crucible of change.
