The mission of the Avalon Hills Foundation for Eating Disorders is to assist individuals in need of treatment for eating disorders and to promote awareness of eating disorders through education, research and advocacy. 

Research Grants
While treatment assistance has been our main focus, we know that eating disorder research receives some of the lowest funding per diagnosed individual. Eating disorders are vastly underfunded compared to other mental illnesses. Schizophrenia, with a much lower mortality rate, receive approximately $68.24 per affected while eating disorders receive approximately $1.20 according to the National Institute of Health. Research projects that we have funded include research on the treat-to-outcome method as well as effects of equine therapy on eating disorder treatment success.

Our research grant program has a rolling deadline and requires a formal application and supporting documentation. There is no set level of funding; funding levels vary from project to project and will be reviewed by our grant committee.
