Focus Areas

Mental Health
The Lovell Foundation envisions communities where mental health care is both barrier- and stigma-free as part of a broader approach to Integrative Health and Wellness. We prioritize programs and initiatives that aim to reduce the stigma of living with and seeking services for a mental health issue. We do not fund drug and alcohol treatment.

Integrative Health and Wellness
We envision communities where all people have access to integrative (also known as alternative or complementary) approaches to health care and wellness throughout the spectrum of life. We prioritize programs and initiatives that aim to broaden the awareness and use of best practice approaches in integrative health and wellness, especially those that reach underserved populations.

Youth Access to the Arts
We believe that experiencing the arts through education or participation contributes to the development of well-rounded individuals. We continue to support community-level programs, but prioritize programs and initiatives with the capacity to systematically improve youth access to arts.

Gender Parity
We partner with organizations working to advance gender parity at a regional or national level only. We give priority to organizations that address gender barriers and aim to have an impact on gender parity in significant and measurable ways. While the majority of gender-based efforts are focused on inequities among girls and women, we will also consider initiatives for men and boys that promote overall gender parity. We do not fund community level projects that provide direct services to gender-specific groups.
