Programs: The Foundation focuses on three mission-critical programs: research, education and support services. Our research program has provided more than $125 million for IDB research, with over $10 million in 2006. We receive more than 220 IBD research grant applications a year, and fund more than 160 projects. Educational workshops and symposia within CCFA?s patient and professional services?together with our scientific journal, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, enables medical professionals to keep pace with the rapidly growing field of IBD research. Our recently established Information Resource Center provides information, guidance and support by Masters-level health professionals five days a week. Additionally, we offers more than 300 support groups across the United States, advocate to increase federal research funding and promote postive quality of life legislation for IBD patients, and run Camp Oasis, a multi-day summer camp program for young people with Crohn?s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Crohn''s disease and ulcerative colitis are collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) because they cause severe inflammation of the intestinal tract, and have common symptoms. The cause remains unknown, and there is no medical cure. The Crohn''s & Colitis Foundation of America was founded in 1967. Its mission is to find a cure for Crohn''s diseasse and ulcerative colitis and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.
