"Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world.  For indeed, that's all who ever have."

Our Mission

CSA is a member-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit support organization dedicated to helping individuals with celiac disease and other gluten-related conditions worldwide and their families through information, education and research.

Our Work

As a non-profit organization, our work relies on the generous contributions of people like you. Your tax-deductible donations may be designated for a particular project (i.e. research, computer equipment/programs, postage) Any monies received, not designated for a particular project, are placed in the general organizational fund. With these monies, CSA is able to: 

Provide Information

We work to "get the word out" about celiac disease through local chapters and resource units, as well as personal telephone and on-line support given by our national office. (see contact information at the bottom of this page). We produce and disseminate many helpful resources such as our quarterly newsletter, Lifeline and A Gluten-Free You monthly e-newsletter, e-cookbooks, the CSA Glossary and other items.

Offer Educational Opportunities

  • Educational Conferences - State and regional are typically held each fall. October is traditional Celiac Awareness Month. States often hold an annual national membership meeting as well.
  • Cel-Kids Network - A network of information and education has been set up especially for children. It includes Camp Celiac, a week long gluten-free camp experience exclusively for kids with celiac disease/dermatitis herpetiformis.
  • Speakers Bureau - Topical presenters are available upon request for group, club or conference gatherings. Contact the national office for information. (See below.)

Participate in and Support Research
CSA is actively involved in the on-going work of the scientific community to discover how CD is related to other health situations. Through our Peer Review Research Grant Program, we provide for product testing and a variety of celiac-related research activities.
