We are more dedicated and committed to our patients and events than ever before.


As current events drastically impact our patients, our mission to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and improve quality of life for those impacted is more important than ever. To do this, we remain passionate in building relationships and planning for success with local partners to better serve our community. We need your support as we unite through these next few months and look towards a successful Summer and Fall. Will you commit to join with us by being as a sponsor and donating to our raffles and auction?

The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation is the only national organization dedicated to finding a cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, debilitating chronic digestive diseases that affect 1 in every 100 Americans, including more than 165,000 patients in the Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area. With more than 80 cents on every dollar directly supporting our mission, we are one of the foremost charity partners in the country and the leader in IBD research, patient education and support services. Since our founding in 1967, we have:

  • Invested over $350 million in research

  • Reached over 1 million patients, families & healthcare providers through education, support, and advocacy programs

  • Overseen more than 300 support groups and 12 Camp Oasis programs for children

  • Welcomed 71 members of Congress to the Crohn’s & Colitis Caucus

Each of our upcoming events will gather the community to honor our brave friends, relatives and colleagues battling IBD, continue to raise awareness, and raise critical funding to find cures. We also want to ensure that we are highlighting our partners to our constituents starting now so they know the role you play in this effort.
