Hanley Family Foundation: Grants For Mental Health

OVERVIEW: The Hanley Family Foundation supports grantmaking for the prevention, treatment and education of alcoholism, chemical dependency and addictive behaviors.

IP TAKE: When applying to the Hanley Family Foundation, grant seekers should indicate their projected impact on the lives of beneficiaries and the ways in which that impact aligns with the foundation’s mission.

PROFILE: Established in 1986, the Hanley Family Foundation supports mental health related research and education projects specifically associated with chemical dependency, alcoholism and addictive behavior. Specifically, it funds efforts to “advance the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of alcoholism, chemical dependency and addictive behavior, including support for related research and education.”

The Hanley Family Foundation doesn’t award a large number of grants, and only intermittently it seems. The grants it does award, however, are substantial, considering the small size of the typical community outfits receiving its $25,000 to $100,000 grants. Very few Hanley grants are awarded to large national organizations.

Grant seekers should check the FAQs to learn more about the types of organizations Hanley supports. Grant seekers are welcome to submit a LOI at any time. The foundation's board reviews submissions periodically throughout the year. Hanley awards grants to like-minded organizations within the United States.
