The Food Allergy Initiative (FAI) is the world’s largest source of private funding for food allergy research.  FAI’s goal is to fund research that seeks a cure; to improve diagnosis and treatment; to increase federal funding of food allergy research and to create safer environments through advocacy; and to raise awareness through education. Founded in 1998 by concerned parents and grandparents, FAI has committed nearly $77 million toward the fulfillment of its mission. FAI is headquartered in New York, with an office in the Chicago area and an active volunteer committee in the Northwest, and enjoys strong relationships with food allergy support groups and advocates nationwide. A national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, FAI is supported solely by donations from dedicated individuals, corporations, and foundations. On May 9, 2012, FAI announced its intent to merge with the other leading food allergy organization, the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN), pending state regulatory approval.  For more information, please visit FAI at www.faiusa.org.
