Avicii’s family have started the Tim Bergling Foundation in support of mental health.
The project will initially concentrate on offering support to individuals and organisations in the field of mental health and suicide prevention, before expanding to cover other issues such as climate change, development assistance, nature conservation and the protection of endangered species.
"Tim wanted to make a difference – starting a foundation in his name is our way to honour his memory and continue to act in his spirit," an official statement from the family said.
Until losing his life on 20th April 2018, aged 28, Avicii— AKA Tim Bergling— raised millions for causes such as world hunger and AIDS. The Foundation will ensure the artist's desire to effect positive change can continue. The EDM star was posthumously awarded a Grammy in Sweden last month, and you can still read our tribute to his influence, attitude and output, published in the wake of his death.
