Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Accomplishments in 2012  1. We educated and supported families by providing extensive offerings and through the innovative use of social media. Our organization’s website has become an award-winning top source of information and support to families raising children with food allergies. In 2012, our website had 1,000,000 visits and membership grew to 29,000 members.  2. We continued to support research on living with food allergies to better understand what families need and how we can best serve them.We collaborated on a study regarding Food Allergy and Use of Emergency Medication to Treat a Reaction.This important research will help us understand parent attitudes towards the use of epinephrine, the findings of which can be used to add or improve educational program offerings.  3.  Our priority continues to be teaching food allergy management, preparedness and prevention of allergic reactions.  The message of keeping kids safe and healthy was consistent in our education, support and outreach program offerings. In fact, a September 2012 survey showed that 83% of people agree or strongly agree that "KFA helps me keep my children safe," and 92% of people surveyed agree or strongly agree that "KFA provides high quality information about food allergies."  4. We successfully engaged in merger negotiations with the nation’s largest allergy and asthma nonprofit organization, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA).As a division of AAFA, KFA will continue all of its current work. With our combined mission of education, advocacy and research, we will be able to do even more to help families. The Board of Directors for each organization voted to approve the merger, pending final regulatory approval.
