The Emily Program Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on a mission to save lives, change minds, and work to eliminate eating disorders. The Foundation seeks to change the conversation about eating disorders and body image issues by increasing understanding through our community education programs, advocating for access to care, providing resources and support for friends and families who are personally impacted by eating disorders, and awarding financial assistance to those seeking intensive treatment for an eating disorder.
Together we can make a difference.
Thank You for Making a Difference
Every 62 minutes, someone dies as a direct result of suffering from an eating disorder. Sadly, only 1 in 10 men and women with eating disorders receives treatment, and most medical doctors receive little to no training on eating disorders.
Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. And while more prevalent than breast cancer or Alzheimer’s, eating disorders receive surprisingly few resources for research and prevention.
Your gift will support education, outreach, and grassroots advocacy. In classrooms and communities, with school children and college students, with parents and teachers, your tax-deductible contribution before June 30 will help in the fight against eating disorders.
