Toni Skifstad had a big heart, but a troubled mind. She struggled with mental health issues for much of her life. She genuinely wanted to do right in this world, but her mental health challenges often got in the way. She is remembered by friends and family as someone who was very caring and friendly.
While Toni is now at peace, there are so many others who aren't. We ask that in lieu of sending flowers or gifts, to please consider a donation to Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, so that others may be relieved of the struggles that Toni experienced. We greatly appreciate any contribution you may be willing to give.
We chose Brain & Behavior Research Foundation because:
Since 1987, the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation has awarded more than $365 million to fund more than 5,000 grants to more than 4,000 scientists around the world.
The mission of the Foundation is to alleviate the suffering caused by mental illness by awarding grants that will lead to advances and breakthroughs in scientific research.
100% of donations for research are invested directly into research grants thanks to the generosity of two family foundations that underwrite operational expenses at the Foundation.
The funding model of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation encourages new and innovative research in that we are able to support new ideas from bottom up generated by scientists.
The Foundation only funds scientists whose research is reviewed and recommended by a world-renowned Scientific Council including Nobel Prize winners and chairs of psychiatric departments.
