Donors and philanthropists rally to support BrainWaves
With the help of funders, we are able to provide support for adolescent mental health research.
Philanthropy magazine, Brummell, reports that BrainWaves has attracted substantial interest after our fundraising team reached out at a charity dinner at Bridgewater House in London. Noted as one of London’s most prestigious houses, it opened its doors last month to host the launch of BrainWaves. Among those attending the dinner were Samantha Cameron, Michael Gove and BrainWaves president Dora Loewenstein.
As part of the evening, a silent Auction included some hugely attractive lots including an African wildlife sarafi, a chance to play tennis with David Cameron, A Coco Chanel-themed trip to Paris and tickets to Wimbledon’s Centre Court for the Men’s Final to name only a few.
Philanthropy has already played a hugely important part in getting the BrainWaves programme up and running. The money raised around the official launch will help us to further grow and widen our work in the next stage of the project working with schools and students to address the mental health crisis amongst young people.
