As a public charity, the Strub Caulkins Center for Suicide Research (the Center) is a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization operating under section 501(c)(3) of Internal Revenue Code. While our charitable mission is raising public awareness and disseminating information related to suicide and mental health issues, we also believe that we are endowed with a certain public trust. As part of that trust, the executive management and the Board of Directors believes in full, proactive disclosure of filings we make to federal and state government agencies as well as our financial status. As permitted by federal and state law, and mandated by policies of the Center, certain personally identifiable information of specific donors may be redacted.
