Her father, Mitch Winehouse, has revealed that the charity will support a range of "causes close to her heart," The Sun reports. "It could include help for children in trouble, kids suffering health problems, children's hospices and more. We want to make a positive difference."
Mitch, Winehouse's record label Universal and her management all agree that its HQ should be the property where she was found dead two weeks ago, it's reported. The family did discuss selling the house, but a source told the tabloid they had opted to keep it for now.

The foundation's mission statement is due to be announced on Sept. 14 the date that would have been Winehouse's 28th birthday.
