We’re celebrating 39 years in 2023!

We are where we are today because of your trust in the Foundation of Hope and your belief in our mission. To date, we have awarded over $8.4 million in research funding and $630,000 in community service grants. In the past year alone we’ve grown our Board, held our biggest events ever, expanded our donor base, launched a new child and adolescent anxiety and mood disorders research program, highlighted stories of love and loss that follow mental illness, and touched thousands of lives. None of this would have been possible without you.

By investing in groundbreaking scientific research and mental health initiatives, we are fighting for a world with better outcomes for now one in three Americans who live with the enormous burden of mental illness. This effort has never been more urgent – especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Every day, we’re inspired by the devotion of our brilliant investigators, the courage of advocates who share their stories, and the enthusiasm of students selling cookies to raise precious dollars for a Walk team. Imagine the pride we’ll all feel to have played a role in the next scientific breakthrough.

Now, we invite you to see how we successfully expanded in 2022 and the tremendous achievements outlined in this annual report. Because this is your story, too.
