The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide.
AFSP's signature fundraising event brings together friends, family, and supporters in nearly 350 communities nationwide.
Engage young adults in AFSP's mission and programs with 5k walks each spring at colleges and high schools across the country.
AFSP's flagship fundraising event, the Overnight is a challenging endurance walk from dusk to dawn that rotates cities each year.
AFSP’s growing network of 75 local chapters nationwide bring together those who have lost someone to suicide, individuals with mental health disorders and their families, those with lived experience, mental health professionals, community and business leaders, and others interested in preventing suicide.
They are at the forefront of increasing the public’s awareness that suicide, as a public health issue, is preventable.
Our chapter volunteers organize creative fundraising events for their entire community.
An AFSP memorial is a meaningful and lasting way to honor a loved one while helping others. Thoughtful gifts made to Memorial Funds help AFSP continue to pursue its mission to one day live in a world without suicide.
There's no limit to the various ways you can personally help raise money and awareness for AFSP. Whether you are running in a marathon, celebrating a birthday or organizing a trivia night, you can use your event to create your own AFSP fundraising campaign.
