OVERVIEW: The Booz Allen Foundation awards grants to mental health organizations in the United States.
IP TAKE: This funder supports organizations fighting the stigma of mental health and raising awareness about the importance of emotional health.
PROFILE: The Booz Allen Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Booz Allen Hamilton, a consulting, analytics and digital solutions company. The company established the foundation in 2018 to “[c]onvene stakeholders to use innovation and technology advancements to help solve challenging social issues and build community resilience.” The foundation is a separate entity from Booz Allen Hamilton and its grantmaking is intended to complement Booz Allen’s corporate philanthropy. Initial areas of focus are global health, veterans and military families, youth and education programs and disaster response and relief.
The foundation has yet to develop its global health grantmaking strategy fully. According to the foundation’s website, “[d]etailed plans for the foundation and its giving will be developed and announced” in the coming months. Applicants should keep an eye on this funder’s evolving global health funding.
The Booz Allen Foundation’s one-page website offers very little information regarding its grantmaking criteria and eligibility. Grantseekers should contact foundation staff for further information.
