Charity of the Month: Brain & Behavior Research Foundation

The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is a national foundation dedicated to alleviating the suffering caused by mental illness. This August, 20% of all QMT Windchimes’ online sales will be donated to support the Foundation’s ongoing mission.

Originally founded as the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia & Depression, the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation combats mental illness by donating grants to strategic research organizations. Since 1987, the Foundation has awarded more than $380 million in grants and is considered the world’s largest non-government funder of mental health research grants. More than 4,500 scientists in 547 research institutions around the world have received a grant from the Foundation.

The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation commits 100% of donations to research grants, since operating expenses are covered by separate foundation grants. In addition to support from organizations like QMT Windchimes, the Foundation also accepts donations in honor of those who have been affected by mental health in some form.

QMT Windchimes is proud to support the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation and its ongoing mission. To donate to the Foundation directly, please visit www.bbrfoundation.org.
