About Us

The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization whose mission is to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases. Today, the organization has grown to 40 local chapters, with more than $200 million raised and invested in research for cures. This funding has enabled many groundbreaking treatments, improved the quality of care for individuals with these conditions, and brought hope to countless lives.

CCFA consistently meets the standards of watchdog organizations that monitor charities, including the American Institute of Philanthropy and the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance, and for the second year in a row has received a 4 star rating on Charity Navigator.

Take Steps
Our Take Steps walks offer a wonderful day for family, friends and the community to celebrate all of the efforts that have been put forth in raising funds towards our mission. Our walk events are filled with live music, food, kids’ entertainment, educational materials, and, of course, wonderful exposure for our corporate partners.

Take Steps for Crohn’s & colitis is a family friendly community walk dedicated to raising awareness and mission-critical funds for cures for digestive diseases. In the past five years alone, we succeeded in bringing together over 240,000 people and raised nearly $60 million to help further CCFA's mission. 82 cents of every dollar raised goes towards breakthrough research, public and professional education, and patient support services in communities across the nation.

Join us in 2015! Take Steps is a nationwide event in more than 145 communities across the country.
