Help Us Stay on the Air in FY 2018

We thank the 265 generous members who contributed $16,333 in operating funds for 2017 (period July 2016 to June 2017) and the incredible volunteer staff and senior members who consistently rise to the needs of others.

Many of us are thankful for what we have gained here and we pay-it-forward so that others will have the same support, education, and brotherhood that made a difference in our lives. Our continued availability is important to those caught in situations like our own and with no place to turn. Consider paying-it-forward with your voice and with your financial assistance. We need both to stay to stay relevant.

Our Challenges Beyond Support and Education

The costs of operating a website with 99% uptime and 100% safety record increases every year. As many of you know, the BPDFamily website was shut down by Tunisian extremists on August 1, 2016. This group hacks high volume websites to post a propaganda pages. They destroy the site so that it takes time to return to operation and the propaganda page stay up. Not only did our the site need to be reconstructed, but the directories had to be rigorously checked by a third party to be sure no time-bombs or land mines were left behind.

Fortunately, the site had already been hardened to secure from data theft. No data was taken. Personal information on the site has been encrypted using the SHA-1 cryptographic hash function designed by the United States National Security Agency since 2007.

We have added additional security to the site in the fall of 2017.

Our Mission

Preserve the Family We are about preserving families. The more marriages repaired, the more mother/child relationships reconnected, the more children we help grow up in a loving home, the better.

Healthier Healing of Failed Relationships Relationship failure is also a reality. People with personality disorders have inherently instable relationship skills that both attract and overwhelm those who love them. When failure happens, we help one another recover in an emotionally mature way. This includes grieving, detaching, and developing the skills necessary to have a more rewarding life, a less traumatic custody battle, a less resentful co-parenting relationship, or a less costly divorce.

Provide Clinically Responsible Tools and Educational Material BPDFamily.com is a great adjunct to forward looking therapies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Schema Therapy. Skills taught here are largely derived from publications written by Shari Manning, Ph.D., Alan Fruzzetti, Ph.D., and the NEA-BPD Family Connections Program.

Submit to External Oversight Site content is directed by an editorial board. The moderation has been monitored and accredited by HON since 2007. HON is accredited to the Economic and Social Council of the U.N.

How Are the Funds Used and Managed

In 2017, sixty-two percent (62%) of your donations were used for outreach which played a significant part in helping new members find us on cluttered search engines. Five percent (25%) went to operations (e.g., writing, programming). All of educational materials were donated free of charge this year. Four percent (13%) paid our overhead (domain and server services).

Funds raised for 2018 will be used to pay out-of-pocket expenses incurred between July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018. Funds will be kept in a community account to be administered by the staff moderators. Donations will appear on your credit card statement as PayPal*Donation*. Donations are not tax deductible - but they help people just the same.

Community Development

In 2017, we did our best to continue to grow as a responsible resource and voice on the Internet. Our total membership is over 100,000 members/alumni with members from 156 countries. In 2017, our website had 35.6 million page views, 137,532 posts, and 14,127 new topics opened. Sixty-five percent of member participation was from the USA and 32% was from, collectively, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, France, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Spain and Switzerland. The messageoard now has more than 3 million posts.

We added 30 ambassadors, 6 advisors, two moderators to the operating team. Since our inception, 320 members have had input and guided this community from these various volunteer positions.

James Saunders at Oxford University Press said it best "I really like this web site. It is really thoughtful and reflective. Calm water in a stormy sea. Wise and considered.".
