Through coordinating fundraising efforts and special events, we offer a variety of meaningful ways to impact the Foundation. Our primary fundraising includes direct donations, our Annual Fund, and events such as Trivia Night and our Circle of Life Gala. Donations may also be made through our Gifts of Gratitude program where one makes a donation in honor of a LifeSpring caregiver, through planned giving, wills, and other activities throughout the year. Our events throughout the year also help us to increase awareness of behavioral health issues.
