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.

“The vote is precious. It is the most powerful non-violent tool we have in a democratic society, and we must use it. And so you must go out all across America and tell young people, and people not so young, tell all of us: Vote. The vote is powerful.”
-John Lewis, US Representative and Civil Rights Leader
Elections are important. We get to choose the public officials who make decisions that can determine the accessibility of health care, affordability of housing, quality of education, and so much more. Through November 3rd, we will cast our ballots and make choices that inevitably impact behavioral health. We hope you’ll join us to #VOTE4MentalHealth.
Like every aspect of our lives, the Coronavirus has complicated voting this year and every state has different voting guidelines. Learn more about the voting laws in your state and make sure you have a plan to vote.
You can also plan who and what you’ll vote for. Do your research about candidates and ballot initiatives up and down the ticket don’t forget to learn about where candidates stand on key issues related to mental health and addiction.
And just in case, have the Election Protection Hotline handy: 1-866-OUR-VOTE (687-8683).
