  • Support Services-CCFA support services are delivered through local chapters which offer more than 200 support groups annually, Camp Oasis (our summer camps for children living with IBD) and a wide range of educational and training programs for communities nationwide.
  • Fundraising Initiatives-Essential to CCFA's mission, our ongoing fundraising efforts enable us to fund further research, as well as educational and support activities. We raise more than $55 million annually through memberships, fundraising events, sponsorships, and other programs.
