Foundations Community Partnership traces its roots to a pioneering facility established to provide behavioral health services in the region. In 1964, the Delaware Valley Mental Health Foundation founded a small psychiatric hospital in Doylestown, Pa. By 1996, the hospital became known as Foundations Behavioral Health and its scope expanded to encompass a full range of behavioral health services for children and adolescents. In 2007, a for-profit organization acquired Foundations Behavioral Health. As a result of the sale, FCP was established as an independent operating foundation under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code to continue the grantmaking, community education, internship, scholarship, and research activities of the hospital.
Progress & Impact
In August 2013, FCP hired Drexel University’s School of Public Health to independently evaluate the foundation’s grant making efforts. The survey was designed to assess grantees’ experiences and perceptions as well as the impact of grant(s) on grantees’ work. Drexel completed the study through a quantitative online survey and qualitative interviews. Results from this study can be viewed here:
