ABOUT CROHN’S & COLITIS FOUNDATION:
The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation is a national organization and is the leading non-profit organization dedicated to finding cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Founded in 1967, the Foundation has been a part of virtually every major scientific research finding in the area of IBD and has contributed over $267 million to research during that time. The Foundation ranks third among health non-profits in the percentage of expense devoted to mission-critical programs, with more than 80 cents of every dollar supporting research, education and support. The Greater New York Chapter serves Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx funding research, raising awareness, and providing education and support to IBD patients and their families.
