This page is dedicated to tracking donors to the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation as part of the Wayfaring Professional silent art auction series which showcases donated prints and framed artwork, courtesy of the local photography and Instagram community!  100% of all donor contributions are invested in research grants, and we are proud of our 4-star rating on Charity Navigator

On a personal note - this movement means a lot to me as anxiety, depression, and other mental illness has touched my family deeply. I cannot believe the support that I have received from all of my friends and fellow artists whom have helped me put this together and I sincerely appreciate any contribution you can make.

Here is content to help explain why you may have chosen to support the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation:

  • Since 1987, the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation (BBRF) has awarded more than $380 million to fund more than 5,500 grants to more than 4,500 scientists around the world.

  • According to the Rand Corporation, BBRF is the nation’s top non-governmental funder of mental health research grants.

  • 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 contributions for research are invested in research grants to neuroscientists thanks to the generous support of two family foundations which cover BBRF operating expenses.

  • 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.

Thanks so much for your contributions and I hope to see you at the next event during Mental Health Month!
