The Transformation of Healthcare Begins with YOU.

The Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) is the leading voice for functional medicine – and has been for more than 30 years. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we are committed to advancing the transformation of healthcare. And we need your help.

At IFM, we support the confident and competent practice of functional medicine through:
Education_icon_final High-quality education and certification programming for practitioners worldwide
Access_icon_final Ensuring access and removing barriers to functional medicine resources and patient care
Research_icon_final Partnerships across medical disciplines and healthcare settings.
Collaboration_icon_final Research and evidence generation and support
Economics_icon_final Increasing awareness of functional medicine through advocacy and storytelling

But we can’t do it alone. We need your support to help us continue this important work.

Your donation helps increase access to accredited medical education for healthcare practitioners seeking to provide their patients with a comprehensive, personalized approach to care.

In 2022, generous contributions from organizations and individuals helped us provide:

  • $1 million in program scholarships, discounts, and tuition assistance, with more than $100,000 in scholarships specifically awarded to improve the quality of care provided to underserved populations.
  • Over 900 hours of education to recipients of our Functional Medicine for All scholarship, which directly impacted more than 66,000 patients last year alone.
  • Discounts totaling $38,480 for military populations and $651,725 for students, including a reduced student tuition so that young medical professionals may begin their functional medicine curriculum alongside their academic and residency programs.


Whether you donate $10, $100, or $1,000, every contribution helps. Your investment has never been more important in our ability, together, to increase access to functional medicine education, lower the barriers for learners, and serve more practitioners and their patients worldwide.

IFM is the only organization providing functional medicine education and certification programs that is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
