The American Liver Foundation® provides research, education, advocacy, and support for 30 million Americans affected by liver disease.
Our mission: to facilitate, advocate and promote education, support and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease.
We carry out our mission through education to promote liver health and disease prevention. Three national core programs are targeted to reach the public, at-risk groups, and patients with liver disease.
We are the leading source of information on liver health and liver disease, through printed materials and www.liverfoundation.org. A toll-free national helpline and 16 divisions across the country provide support to newly diagnosed patients, families, and the general public, through phone, email, and community outreach.
We fund research that had helped to begin the careers of more that 750 scientists in the field of liver health in hopes of finding treatments and cures that will lead to a world free of liver disease.
We advocate for the 30 million Americans with liver disease.
According to our most recent annual report, 78 cents of every dollar raised by the American Liver Foundation goes directly to programs and services. (Fiscal Year 2009 Annual Report)
