Mr. Theodore Stanley

The Stanley Foundation

Mr. Stanley, with his wife Vada, founded the Theodore and Vada Stanley Foundation. The Stanley’s have focused the majority of their philanthropic giving to issues involving mental illness. The Stanley Foundation presently supports approximately half of all research related to bipolar disorder currently taking place in the United States and grants nearly forty percent of their research awards to international research efforts in England, Germany, Denmark, Canada, the Netherlands, Italy, Russia, India, Taiwan, Australia, India, and Ethiopia. In addition to their support of Religions for Peace, the Stanley’s have been long time supporters of many humanitarian causes, including Third World refugee-relief efforts, Habitat for Humanity and the Carter Center.
