Avicii’s family announced that they are launching a mental illness and suicide prevention foundation in Avicii’s memory, The Tim Bergling Foundation. An announcement made by the family says the foundation, “will initially focus on supporting people and organizations working in the field of mental illness and suicide prevention.”

The foundation will also help with “climate change, development assistance, nature conservation and endangered species.”
