Spring 2021 Grant Recipients

This grant cycle, the ABMF Board of Directors invited a limited number of new and previously awarded organizations to apply for grants in three categories, including the newly created Asian American/ Pacific Islander Community Support grant. 

 

The four grant awardees for A Beautiful Mind Foundation's Spring 2021 grant cycle are based in cities across the country, from San Francisco to Washington DC. Grants were awarded in the Asian American/Pacific Islander Community Support and Educate, Enlighten, and Empower categories, which support groups that provide culturally competent mental health programs in communities of color. Grant amounts for the Spring 2021 cycle totaled $8,400. Read about how each grant recipient will use the ABMF grant award to positively impact the mental wellbeing of  people of color.
