Mission Statement

To cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.

Description

CCFA sponsors basic and clinical research of the highest quality. We also offer a wide range of educational programs for patients and healthcare professionals, while providing supportive services to help people cope with these chronic intestinal diseases. These programs are supported solely through our donors, grants, fundraising efforts, and sponsors.

Our areas of focus include:
    • Research Programs-CCFA has provided more than $267 million for research on the treatment and cures of IBD.
    • Education Programs
    • Support Services-CCFA support services are delivered through local chapters.
    • Advocacy
    • Quality of Care
    • Clinical Trials Community
  • Fundraising Initiatives-Essential to CCFA's mission, our ongoing fundraising efforts enable us to fund further research, as well as educational and patient support activities. Last year, we raised more than $80 million through memberships, fundraising events, sponsorships, and other programs.
