F.E.A.S.T. Donors Make A Difference In Our Community
Through our donor’s generosity and commitment we are living our mission to support caregivers by providing information, mutual support, promoting evidence-based treatment, and advocating for research and education to reduce the suffering associated with eating disorders. As the global need continues to increase, our donors enable F.E.A.S.T. to maintain and expand our capacity to serve.
Our donors are people in the community: people who have benefitted from our peer support, our publications, and our advocacy on their behalf. You are our vital resource to do what we do for families like yours. Your donations pay it forward to other families, and inspire other families to give as well.
We are not alone, any of us. Take a look at some of those community members:

Our Donation Policy
Why doesn’t F.E.A.S.T. fund itself through sponsors and advertising from eating disorder treatment providers?
We are committed to a policy of independence from marketing to families because we believe parents need information about their treatment participation, and choices where available, that is about evidence and fit. We feel how a family engages with and chooses treatment is key to successful interventions. Funding our organization in the usual way could influence these vital decisions. We do not recommend, nor do we critique treatment providers or methods, and our independence allows us to speak up about issues and policy without fear of losing funding. Although treatment providers can donate privately using their personal funds, we do not publish the names, nor do we allow public claims of giving to F.E.A.S.T. by providers. We find families appreciate our policy, and so do our supporters in the treatment community. There are other ways to support F.E.A.S.T. than donations, such as sharing our resources with clients, sharing our posts on social media, and inviting F.E.A.S.T. representatives to speak and collaborate.
