Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis is CCFA’s largest fundraising event having touched over 240,000 people and raised nearly $60M to help further the Foundation’s mission.
Our Take Steps walks offer a wonderful day for family, friends and the community to celebrate all of the efforts that have been put forth in raising funds towards our mission. Our walk events are filled with live music, food, kids’ entertainment, educational materials, and, of course, wonderful exposure for our corporate partners. In 2014, more than 70,000 people joined us nationwide, helping us raise $11M.
83 cents of every dollar raised goes towards breakthrough research, public and professional education, and patient support services in communities across the nation.

Register today for the 2015 Rhode Island Take Steps Walk and make a self-donation of $25 and you will receive a window decal to place in your car or other publicly visible place.
Be a part of making a difference to those who suffer in silence.
Next Steps - Help us raise awareness!
Take a photo with your “Decal Don” (think Flat Stanley) and share on social media. Don't forget to tag us with #decaldon. Let's show the world your team’s commitment to the fight against digestive diseases. Together we will find a cure!
FUNDRAISING TIP/MATCHING GIFTS: 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.
