Thank you all so much for participating in the Baltimore Take Steps Walk for Crohn's & Colitis. Because you chose to walk with us, we were able to raise over $220,000 to further CCFA's mission of curing Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and improving the lives of those affected by these diseases!  Please give yourselves a round of applause!

Your generosity, dedication and volunteerism are greatly appreciated. We simply cannot do what we do without each and every one of you!  But fundraising doesn't have to stop on walk day!  You have proven that!  We have until December 31 to get to our $240,000 goal. The upcoming holidays are the perfect time to get festive and plan a third party fundraiser.  Contact me if you need some ideas or help!

    Fundraising Tip:  Have You Been Matched?

    Matching-gifts are an easy way to significantly increase the impact of your contributions. Many companies around the country donate funds to match gifts made by their employees to non-profit organizations. A dollar-for-dollar match is common, and some companies will even contribute up to two or three dollars for each dollar an employee gives.  Some even match gifts made by retirees and spouses!

    So what are you waiting for? Ask your company today if it offers a matching-gift program, and request a matching-gift form. Send us the completed and signed form via mail, email or fax and we will do the rest.
