Crohn's & Colitis Foundation - Westchester & Connecticut Chapter
Non-Profit Municipal Organization
We are a non-profit, volunteer-fueled organization dedicated to finding cures for Crohn's disease & ulcerative colitis, improving the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases. Since our founding in 1967, the Foundation has played a role in every major breakthrough in IBD research. We have invested more than $400 million into finding the causes, treatments, and cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. And we won’t stop until we realize our vision of a future free from Crohn’s and colitis.
The Foundation sponsors basic and clinical research of the highest quality. We also offer a wide range of educational programs for patients and healthcare professionals, while providing supportive services to help people cope with these chronic intestinal diseases. These programs are supported solely through our donors, grants, fundraising efforts, and sponsors.
In 2021 alone, the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation invested $63 million in our mission, the most in Foundation history. Of this amount, more than $32 million was directed to 200+ research projects, bringing the number of projects we have supported since our inception to more than 2,500 and our total investment in research to $446 million.
