Where does your money go?

80 cents of every dollar raised goes toward critical programA little bit goes such a long way.  The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation uses approximately 80 cents of every dollar you raise in Take Steps to support research and local programs. Your funds are also used to bring support services and information to families in need when they or a loved one is chronically ill.

Your support and generosity gives hope to the many children and adults who are living with Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis (known as inflammatory bowel disease or IBD).  

CCFA research programs are creating tomorrow's treatments and perhaps laying the groundwork for cures. Last year, the Information Resource Center at CCFA connected with more than 17,500 patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals. CCFA offers educational and patient services through its 41 chapters nationwide that include teleconferences, support groups, the latest clinical trials information and much more. Any amount you can give makes a difference.
