Every dollar that you promise to Karla Smith Foundation supports a family affected by the mental illness of a loved one, or a family who grieves the loss of a loved one to suicide. Your dollars don't just change lives... your dollars SAVE lives. And for 10 years, your contributions have SAVED thousands of families across the country. There is no price tag you can place on a gift like that! Thank you.
Less than 6% of Karla Smith Foundation's annual revenue supports operating costs. What does this mean to you, our supporter? It means that you can feel confident that the dollars you give are managed with GREAT responsibility. 1 in 4 people in this country suffer from a mental health condition. That's a greater percentage than those suffering from any other major illness, including breast cancer and heart disease. Multiple that number by 4, and that is the average number of people affected by ONE person's illness. Mental illness has the power to destroy families and lives. KSF changes that percentage dramatically. Your funding provides families with the tools, resources, education and case management services to SAVE their families, their person who suffers, and to restore their HOPE. There is no better gift. Will you lend a hand?
