Why we fundraise.

Millions of Americans live with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis you likely know someone affected by one of these invisible and incurable diseases. Despite this, many do not fully understand these diseases, collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), or how they impact daily life. 

The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation is dedicated to finding cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and improving the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.
