Thank you for your generous support
TOPS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, noncommercial organization with an international reach, helping millions of people since 1948. Our work is possible due to generous donors and grateful members who support our efforts to:
- Connect people of all backgrounds (many of whom cannot afford more expensive commercial programs) through our network of weight‐loss support groups located in every U.S. state and throughout Canada.
- Provide free and subsidized educational resources and realistic strategies which are evidence‐based and proven effective for weight loss and improved health outcomes.
- Empower people to stop dieting and start creating healthy lifestyle habits that will work for them over the long haul so that they can do more of the things they enjoy with the people they love.
- Support obesity and metabolic research. Our partnerships with major universities have lead to the discovery of seven genes related to obesity and yielded important insights into this complex, chronic disease and its comorbidities, including diabetes and heart disease.
