You are here: Support for Australians experiencing eating disordersAbout the Butterfly Foundation › Partnerships


For over 12 years, Butterfly has worked tirelessly to provide services and support for those suffering from an eating disorder and negative body image along with their families, friends and carers. But we haven’t done this alone! It is through the generous support of a number of key corporate and community partnerships including SPORTSGIRLDOVEFUTURE GENERATION GLOBAL and MINTER ELLISON that has allowed us to carry out the work that we do.

Over the past ten years, corporate and community partnerships have contributed towards:

  • The realisation of a National Helpline for those seeking vital assistance
  • The provision of financial support for those who cannot afford vital treatment through our Financial Assistance for Recovery Program
  • The development of Butterfly’s education programs which has reached over 560,000 young people in schools across Australia
  • Pro bono legal support to assist in our governance and compliance requirements

Making a Positive Difference

Collaboration with our partners takes many forms including financial support, in-kind support, payroll giving and pro bono activities. Butterfly works closely with our partners to support their organisational values and deliver tangible benefits so that we together can bring about positive change for those suffering from an eating disorder and negative body image.
