Kartini Foundation

About the Kartini Foundation

The Kartini Foundation was established in 2001 as an independent 501(c)(3) private foundation to aid families in covering the gap where health insurance benefits stop, and treatment for the child has not been completed.

Many health insurance companies cover only a percentage of the costs to treat a child with an Eating Disorder. In general, insurance coverage for Eating Disorders is profoundly inadequate.

The mission of the Kartini Foundation is to increase awareness and education of Eating Disorders and to provide families and ill children with financial assistance to supplement their treatment.
