The Mission of the Drake Davis Foundation, (a 501(c)(3) organization

(20-8198140)), is to raise awareness of suicide prevention and to assist people whose lives are affected by suicide.

 

Formed in memory of Drake Davis who died by suicide on January 4, 2006, the Foundation awards scholarships to high school seniors who exemplify outstanding leadership, character and community service.   These scholarships not only provide needed financial assistance but also an occasion to raise awareness and talk ​about suicide prevention among young people.  Suicide is a problem that so few people talk about but awareness should be made of the impact of suicide on people in general and young people in particular:

  • nearly 1,000,000 people attempt suicide every year equaling an attempt every 28 seconds*

  • someone dies from suicide every 14.2 minutes; - over 35,000 lives are lost to suicide each year in the US;

  • it is the 10th leading cause of death among all people;

  • suicide is the number 2 killer of young people  between 15 and 24; and

  • suicide is the number 2 killer of teenage boys.

The Drake Davis Foundation encourages you to "SPEAK UP and REACH OUT" to a person in need.

ABOUT DRAKE

This Page is Dedicated in Loving Memory of Drake Davis

Drake Davis was 17 years old when he died by suicide. He was a junior and center of the football team at Chapel Hill High School in Douglasville, Georgia.  Drake left behind a mother, father, brother, sister and so many people who love him. 

 

When suicide happens no one wants to talk about it.  One of the important issues that the Drake Davis Foundation wants to  

address is speaking up about suicide and reaching out to help prevent it from happening to others.  People need to be aware of the impact of suicide on our society.  We talk about drinking, using drugs, having sex, but we don't talk about suicide.  It is time to speak up and reach out.  Let's fight the number 2 killer of teens.
