This fundraiser was created in memory of Chester Bennington, singer of Linkin Park, who died by suicide on July 20th, 2017. Linkin Park Fan Corner decided to support the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation because 100% of the money raised will benefit the science necessary to alleviate horrible mental illnesses such as depression, borderline, addiction, PTSD & more. Please give whatever you can!
Here is some more information:
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.
