How Your Donation Helps
The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding the cures for Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis. It was founded in 1967 by Irwin M. and Suzanne Rosenthal, William D. and Shelby Modell, and Henry D. Janowitz, M.D.
The Foundation consistently meets standards established by the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance as well as other charity watchdog organizations.
Over 1.4 million Americans suffer from Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We do not yet know the cause, and, despite the development of promising new medications, we still don’t have a cure. Your donation will help fund critical research for improving treatment and finding a cure for IBD, as well as support programs for those who live with these diseases every day. We depend solely on private donations to fund these vital programs.
The Philadelphia/ Delaware Valley Chapter serves Philadelphia, Eastern Pennsylvania, Central and Southern New Jersey and Northern Delaware areas.
