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. Unfortunately, due to its sparse website, it lacks transparency restricting information about grant strategies and deadlines.
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 giving. Initial areas of focus are global health, veterans and military families, youth and education programs, and disaster response and relief.
The foundation does not have a grantmaking program dedicated to mental health; however, according to its website, Booz Allen has “[t]aken a leadership role on eliminating the stigma around mental health and building more appreciation and awareness of emotional fitness in the corporate world.”
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.
