On 28 November 2023, people all around the world are coming together to tap into the power of human connection and strengthen communities and change our world. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past ten years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

The Schizophrenia International Research Society (SIRS) will be participating in GivingTuesday and we hope you will join SIRS by:

Making a Donation: SIRS research awards, programs, and conferences fuel the continued growth and development of the whole schizophrenia research community. It is estimated that 1 in every 100 people in the world live with schizophrenia and even more live with psychosis. Now more than ever there is a need for increased research funding for schizophrenia research around the world. All gifts are important whether $50, $200, $2,000 or any size - they all are meaningful and needed to fuel the continued growth, development of schizophrenia research.

This past year, SIRS has continued to grow our programs and services – particularly to Early Career Researchers. SIRS is specifically raising funds to support a research award program that will provide funds for a project aimed to improve the lives of people with schizophrenia NOW. The purpose of the Research Fund Award is to provide initial research funds for an early career investigator who has an important idea or hypothesis to test, but no funds to do so.
