Special Occasion Gifts

You can help the millions of Americans who suffer from Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis with a special occasion gift to the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation in lieu of favors.


Your gift can honor your family and friends and make the celebration of a wedding, birthday, bar or bat mitzvah, or other occasion even more special. In return, we will send you a certificate to display at your wedding or other special event.


There is a $75.00 minimum donation to receive your certificate. The 8.5” x 11” certificate is printed on high quality paper.
