RaisedBy.Us Suicide Prevention Fund

About

Each year 44,965 Americans die by suicide. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US. Given recent events, we wanted to highlight some ways you can be a part of suicide prevention through giving and volunteering. The RaisedBy.Us Suicide Prevention Fund below consists of five national non-profits that are leading the way for suicide prevention. Your donation through your Bright Funds account will be split evenly between these organizations.
