The Charles E. Kubly Foundation seeks to better the lives of those affected by depression by increasing public awareness of the disease and its devastating effects, eliminating the stigma associated with it, supporting suicide prevention programs and promoting improved access to quality mental health resources within communities.
Through the generous support of our donors, we provide grants to fund quality mental health projects to nonprofit organizations for projects that are consistent with our mission to raise awareness of depression, reduce the stigma associated with it and help people access resources in their communities. Additionally, we fund projects that address suicide prevention.
Many people don't recognize that depression is a disease and often see depression as a weakness or something that they should be able to fix on their own. Depression is a disease like any other, and, if left untreated, can have devastating consequences. The Charles E. Kubly Foundation was founded in 2003 after the death of Charlie Kubly. Friends and family members of Charlie saw a need in the community for services to address depression and suicide prevention.
