Ways To Give

Choose a Fund

Compare Your Options

We provide options you won’t find elsewhere: staff support and financial oversight for improving mental health care anywhere in the world through donor-advised funds that give you flexibility, influence and involvement. Our mental health focus and international scope are unique.

Regional/Local Community Foundations
Most have donor-advised funds for local use only and limited help in targeting mental health care.

Private Foundations
To create a private foundation requires substantial assets and a dedicated administrative infrastructure.

Commercial Charitable Gift Funds
Available through banks and investment companies, comparatively less flexible.

Administrative Fees
The fees you pay help us work together to change mental health care. For a complete description, click here.
