Keith's brother-in-law Larry Sprung explaining the work the Keith Milano Memorial Fund does
Keith’s spirit and laughter is kept alive through our efforts to increase awareness about mental illness and to raise money for education and imperative research. Keith often struggled with society’s perception of mental illness.
Our hope is that by having the strength to say that Keith was “Bipolar” we can strip away the stigma and help others to be more open about their disease.
The Keith Milano Memorial Fund benefits the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). Since losing Keith on September 5, 2004 we have raised over 1.7 million dollars for AFSP in his name.
AFSP is the only national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research and education, and to reaching out to people with mood disorders and those affected by suicide. AFSP is a fully accredited 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization incorporated in the state of Delaware with primary offices in New York City. Federal tax ID # is 13-3393329.
