The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation has been around for 30 years. Its original acronym was NARSAD (National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression). The name was changed five years ago. They still award NARSAD Research Grants. For its 30 years it has been a unique charity because 2-3 family foundations have paid 100% of its overhead costs so that 100% of money donated for research, goes to research.
