Most people believe that mental health disorders are rare and “happen to someone else”. In fact, mental health disorders are common and widespread. Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S., 43 million Americans, or 20% experiences mental illness in a given year. That’s more than the population of New York and Florida combined. The 4th and Forever Foundation (4aF) is a nonprofit organization that creates a positive atmosphere for generating charitable contributions to fund the battle against mental illness. 4aF is committed to spreading awareness, educating and funding research for these often stigmatized illnesses.
The 4th and Forever team is passionate about positive fundraising for a severely underfunded cause. We focus our energy on trying to spread awareness, educate and fund research for mental illness. This is this reason that we have chosen to partner with the Player's Philanthropy Fund (PPF) to help operate our backend accounting, bookkeeping, compliance and tax filing functions. The partnership is called a "fiscal sponsorship" and can be defined as the practice of non-profit organizations offering their legal and tax-exempt status to groups engaged in activities related to the organization's missions. Fiscal sponsorship can enable projects to share a common administrative platform with a larger organization, thus increasing efficiency. We are great at raising the money from our generous supporters and they are great at running the backend of our operation. Sounds like a perfect game plan to us.
