Philanthropist MacKenzie Scott Donates $15M to the PATH Foundation
PATH has provided more than $60M to date to community initiatives.
Philanthropist MacKenzie Scott has notified the PATH Foundation she will award them a $15 million grant.
“We were so excited to learn that Ms. Scott selected the PATH Foundation for this generous contribution,” said Christy Connolly, PATH Foundation president and CEO. “We were completely taken by surprise that she was aware of the work we’ve done in the community and thrilled to have this validation of efforts we’ve made since our inception.”
Connolly added, “Our board and staff are incredibly grateful for Ms. Scott’s grant and will use this significant gift to continue investing in our community, guided by our mission and strategic plan.”
Since its inception, the PATH Foundation has invested more than $60M in the community through grants, programs and partnerships and is providing another $1.5M in grants to the community this week. The organization supports nonprofits and government agencies whose goals for wellness and community improvement align with its values. The mission of PATH is to strengthen the health and vitality of the community.
PATH Foundation grant recipients must align with one or more core focus areas including access to health, childhood wellness, mental health and senior services.
The PATH Foundation is a private philanthropic foundation headquartered in Warrenton, Virginia. The organization supports nonprofits and programs in Fauquier, Rappahannock and Culpeper counties. The PATH Foundation, originally known as the Fauquier Health Foundation, received funding and was renamed in 2013 following the sale of Fauquier Health System (Fauquier Hospital) to LifePoint Health. It then became a standalone foundation.
