About The Cause
ALF’s mission is to promote education, advocacy, support services and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease.
Founded in 1976, the ALF is the nation’s largest patient advocacy organization for people living with liver disease. Recognized as a trusted voice for those battling liver disease, ALF also operates a national toll-free helpline, educates patients, policymakers and the public, and provides grants to early-career investigators to find cures for liver disease. To date, ALF has provided nearly $27 million in support to more than 870 researchers.
Donations to the American Liver Foundation help to improve the lives of people with liver disease through: advocacy, education, support services and research. Every gift makes a difference and helps us to fulfill our mission. We are committed to being the best possible stewards of donated funds and are dedicated to honor donor intent and practice financial transparency.
