In less than a month it will have been a year since Avicii passed away of suspected suicide, and his surviving family members intend to mark the occasion with something permanent. They have announced that April 20th, 2019 will mark the launch of the Tim Bergling Foundation.

Initially, the foundation will provide support for organizations working towards suicide prevention and other initiatives. In the long term, it will also highlight causes such as climate change, endangered species, and nature conservation. 

"Tim wanted to make a difference," reads a joint statement issued by the Bergling family. "Starting a foundation in his name is our way to honour his memory and continue to act in his spirit."

Bergling had struggled with drug and alcohol abuse and had discontinued touring in 2016. His meteoric rise and tragic fall have been documented in a documentary titled Avicii: True Stories.
