Role of the Board

  1. To raise funds for a capital base to support an annual income that will be distributed for purposes of research into youth depression.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. To raise the profile of issues concerning youth depression through its sponsored research programs and fund raising activities.
  5. To produce a report to contributors on activities of the Anika Foundation each year.
