    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I Enter The Lottery Each Month If I Already Received A Grant?

    Yes, as long as you still meet the eligibility requirements, you may enter the lottery each month. Grantees are limited to five awards within WithAll’s fiscal year (July-June).

    How Do I Apply for the Recovery for All Fund?

    The Recovery for All Fund provides living-expense grants to individuals who identify as BIPOC*. This fund has been integrated into the general Recovery Support Program application process. Therefore, to apply, simply enter the lottery on the first of the month and eligible applicants will be notified to apply as funds allow.

    *For the sake of brevity, WithAll uses the term BIPOC to indicate Black, Indigenous and People of Color. We acknowledge each individual’s right to self-identify and recognize that not all people for whom BIPOC is intended would choose to label themselves as such. WithAll understands the limitations of labels and embraces both the unique and shared elements of every individual’s lived experiences.

    No, only one entry per person each month.

    The Anna Westin Fund

    Each year, 20% of WithAll’s Recovery Support Program grants are awarded from the Anna Westin Memorial Fund. This special fund was created by Kitty and Mark Westin, in honor of their daughter, Anna, who died in 2000 from an eating disorder. Since 2000, Kitty and Mark have worked tirelessly, to end the stigma and shame associated with eating disorders, and to advocate so that everyone who needs it has access to treatment. Anna’s spirit and Kitty and Mark’s resolve motivate us daily to fulfill our mission to reach as many people as possible who need support as they work to recover from an eating disorder.

    Funding for these grants wouldn’t be possible without our amazing recovery supporters.
