The Foundation of Hope for Research and Treatment of Mental Illness


The Foundation of Hope for Research and Treatment of Mental Illness is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization funding research aimed at discovering the causes and potential cures for mental illness in order to develop more effective means of treatment. Additionally, the Foundation is committed to raising community awareness and supporting effective treatment programs. The Foundation of Hope provides financial support for ongoing and new research, treatment and the development of researchers through the University of North Carolina Neuroscience Hospital and its affiliated programs. 

The Foundation of Hope was established in 1984 by the late Thad and Alice Eure, founders of the world renowned Angus Barn Restaurant in Raleigh, NC.  To date, the foundation has funded over 105 scientific research grants totaling nearly $3.2 million.  Local research grants have leveraged an additional $100 million in federal grants.
