Team Up for Research

Team Up for Research

With the support of family, friends and your community, you can make a difference in the fight against mental illness. Brain & Behavior Research Foundation relies on the generosity of friends like you to help fund leading brain and behavior research.

100% of donor contributions for research are invested in our grants leading to advances and breakthroughs in brain and behavior research. This is made possible by the generous support of two family foundations which cover the Foundation’s operating expenses.

When you honor or remember someone special or hold a fundraiser, you play a key role in helping us fund better prevention and treatment protocols and hopefully find a cure for mental illness.

Get started today with our Fundraising Guide. In it, you'll find tips, ideas and resources to start fundraising or hold an event.
