Our mission is to save the lives of people who have no symptoms but are unknowingly destroying their livers and those who are already diagnosed. We aim to provide them with information that can help them change their lifestyle and maintain as much health as possible. It is the purpose of the Fatty Liver Foundation to address, educate, coordinate, and support victims of the growing epidemic of fatty liver disease and its consequences.
We are a qualified non-profit by the IRS for non-taxable charitable status under 501(c)(3) of the federal code. Any contributions you make to the foundation are tax deductible. For the 2021 tax year, people who take the standard deduction can deduct up to $300 of cash donations to charity, and up to $600 for joint filers.
If you or a loved one is concerned about liver disease, diabetes, obesity, diet or other liver related subjects please consider becoming a member. Membership is free, but we need your support and hope you will support our cause.Donate
In-kind donations are as important as cash. People facing liver disease have needs that are both physical and psychological because end stage liver failure is a hard way to die. Our goal is to help people avoid unnecessary hardship, so anything that can help is greatly appreciated.

Liver Care Canada was founded in 2015 by a team of healthcare professionals with a goal to make services and treatments easily accessible to liver disease patients. They operate mobile liver screening vans to seek out and serve patients who are located far from medical facilities.
With recent advances in therapies and diagnostics, liver disease patients can now be effectively treated outside the hospital system. Our Liver Care Program preserves hospital resources for more complicated cases and also provides an efficient model of care that has been proven effective. We are working together to develop mobile resources for screening people at risk for fatty liver disease at an economical price.

OK, I'm sure you know there are a lot of lawyers involved with being a non-profit, tax exempt organization. FATTY LIVER FOUNDATION is organized to be a non-profit public benefit 501(c)(3) association and is operated exclusively for educational and charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code.
FATTY LIVER FOUNDATION is not organized and shall not be operated for the private gain of any person. The property of the association is irrevocably dedicated to its educational and charitable purposes and no part of the receipts, or net earnings of the association shall be used for any activities other than its mission. FATTY LIVER FOUNDATION will always retain control over the contributed funds and will provide the relative information regarding its activities on its website.
FATTY LIVER FOUNDATION is organized for the purpose of providing information, education and support to patients suffering with liver disease and to educate people at risk of developing liver disease. The primary emphasis will be on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, called NAFLD, and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, called NASH. In context, NAFLD is the early formation of fat deposits in the liver which can result in NASH and cirrhosis with ultimate end stage liver failure.
Since you are here you may wish to help us. We certainly appreciate any support you can give.
