Philanthropy and major gifts
A major gift is a significant financial donation made by a trust, foundation or individual that helps us work towards our mission to enable mentally healthier lives through science, education, public policy and knowledge translation.
Why giving a major gift matters
Even though everyone can make a difference in the fight against mental illness, the generosity shown through large gifts and donations make a significant impact; we simply can’t ignore the value and long-term impact of these donations.
We rely on gifts of significance to create change and make breakthroughs. Significant donations provide for long-term investment and create the foundation for major impact in the shortest time for people with a mental illness.
This is why the support we receive from major donors, charitable trusts is essential.
