The Anika Foundation
The Anika Foundation was established in 2005 to raise funds for the purpose of supporting research into adolescent depression and suicide, which have become amongst the most significant (but least well considered) medical and social problems of our time. The Anika Foundation is governed by a Board comprising Dr Adrian Blundell-Wignall (Chair), Mr Glenn Stevens, Mr Jeff White, Mr Crispin Murray, Mr Paul Brennan, Professor Philip Mitchell, Ms Danae Blundell-Wignall, Mr Tate Dogan. Funds are raised for an endowment that is invested by professional fund managers working on a completely voluntary basis. Income from the fund is used to sponsor prizes for research, community and school initiatives, in perpetuity, in the area of adolescent depression and suicide. The Anika Foundation provides an opportunity for corporate Australia to make a difference in an area that affects at least 1 in 4 families. All donations are fully tax deductible, and donors are permanently listed on the website. For further details please visit: anikafoundation.com
