Funding for the Sutherland Center at CU is provided through an annual grant from the Sutherland Foundation, through in-kind contributions from the University of Colorado, Department of Psychology & Neuroscience, and from generous grants from the University of Colorado’s Outreach Committee. This partnership sustains the Center’s work.
Initial funding for the Sutherland Foundation was provided by the Sutherland family and the Colorado Grand, a world-class vintage car-touring rally founded by Robert D. Sutherland. These two parties have continued to provide important contributions to the Foundation which have helped sustain the Center. As of December 2017, the Colorado Grand has donated over $500,000 to the Center through the RDS Foundation.
The Sutherland Foundation is a member-driven organization. Through our member’s generosity, the Sutherland Foundation has now provided over $1 million to the Sutherland Center at CU. With these funds clinicians at CU, along with contracted doctors in the community, have helped over 1600 people impacted by bipolar disorder since 2001.
Funds from the Sutherland Foundation alone would not sustain the Center. The University of Colorado, through the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience, has taken vital steps to sustain the Center, from housing the Center to waiving fees typically charged to grants made to the University.
