It’s about people: F.E.A.S.T. Donors
Everything we do here at F.E.A.S.T. to support and connect and educate families depends on the donors who make it possible. Donors keep our websites operating and our publications available. Donors enable the coordination of our volunteer teams, the phone lines, our communications, and our events. Donors pay for legal and technical services, printing, postage, and software.
Mostly, our donors enable PEOPLE. It allows our volunteers and staff to be there for families wherever they are, whatever they are going through. It enables us to get parents in front of decision and policy makers, to collaborate with leaders in the field, to work with our Advisory Panel to improve treatment and promote family inclusion in treatment.
Our people are our strength, and as our community grows so do the demands for our voice, our information, and our help.

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 Although treatment providers can donate privately using their personal funds, we do not publish the names, nor do we allow public claims of giving to F.E.A.S.T. by providers.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.
