Role of the Board
- To raise funds for a capital base to support an annual income that will be distributed for purposes of research into youth depression.
- To invest the capital in high-yielding shares, (with a couple of ethical restrictions that Anika would have insisted on), to maximize returns for a relatively low level of investment risk.
- To allocate income from the fund, once established, in the form of prizes for research in the area of adolescent depression and suicide. Medical, social and educational research will be eligible.
- To raise the profile of issues concerning youth depression through its sponsored research programs and fund raising activities.
- To produce a report to contributors on activities of the Anika Foundation each year.
