Celebrating the 55th Anniversary of The Foundation

We’re celebrating our 2nd Annual Giving Day, honoring 55 years since the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation was established in September 1967.

Your gift today through September 30 will help improve the quality of life for individuals (and their loved ones) affected by IBD.

And thanks to the Dodson family, generous supporters with two sons living with ulcerative colitis, all Giving Day gifts will be matched, up to a total of $50,000, from now through September 30!

We are on the road to cures and every dollar is critical to bringing us closer to a cure for IBD and ensures that everyone living with the disease gets access to the quality care and education needed to live their lives to the fullest.

Donate $55 or more and receive this plush Gutsy as a 55th anniversary keepsake. Please GIVE WITH GUTS and donate now!

Give to Support the Millions of Patients Battling these Diseases

Patient story

Michael’s Story

Michael has endured 16 expensive surgeries, losing most of his intestines, and has spent up to 12 hours a day hooked up to an IV just to get nutrition since he was first diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at age 11. But thanks to the support he has received from the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and his friends and family, he is much better now after receiving an intestinal transplant. Your support today will help us offer support to other children and their families.

Patient story

Ayla’s Story

Ayla is one of the youngest patients we’ve ever seen. Her parents needed to change her diaper at least 15 times a day when she was only three months old. Early in her life, she could only consume her food through a tube in her stomach and had to visit the hospital every seven weeks to have an IV infusion. But thanks to your support, today she is 10 years old, and her disease is largely in remission. Instead of spending time in the hospital, she loves to dance. “It makes me so happy,” she told us. “And it allows my mind to go somewhere else when things have been stressful.”

Patient story

Chad’s Story

When he was nine years old, Chad experienced horrible symptoms that led to his hospitalization and a diagnosis of ulcerative colitis. The experience was traumatic, isolating, and made Chad feel lonely. But through Camp Oasis, our co-ed residential camp exclusively for kids with IBD, he found himself in the one place where other kids understood his struggle. When his mom picked him up, she found Chad in tears, because he was so sad to leave. Your ongoing support will help other kids like Chad have great experiences at Camp Oasis.
