Since our founding over five decades ago, the Foundation has remained at the forefront of research in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Today, we fund cutting-edge studies at major medical institutions, nurture investigators at the early stages of their careers, and finance underdeveloped areas of research. In addition, our educational workshops and programs, along with our scientific journal, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, enable medical professionals to keep pace with this rapidly growing field. We are very proud that the National Institutes of Health has commended us for "uniting the research community and strengthening IBD research."
To cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases. Learn more about our mission.
Your Dollars at Work
Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation consistently meets standards established by the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance as well as other charity watchdog organizations. The Foundation donates more than 80 cents to the dollar back to the mission. Read more about how we steward your dollars.
It is estimated that as many as 3 million Americans suffer from Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. We serve that community through our 40 chapters as well as our national education and support programs. We have a constituent base of more than two million people. Since the Foundation is not a government-supported agency, we rely on the support of our members and donors to continue our work.
