CCFA is delighted to officially introduce one of our biggest, research initiatives -- IBD Plexus. Thanks to a grant from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, we are creating the first ever multi-dimensional knowledge platform to integrate scientific, medical, and patient data. IBD Plexus is designed to enable novel research and speed progress toward precision medicine, leading to better diagnostics, treatments, and ultimately, cures for IBD.

We are proud to announce that for the fourth year in a row, we have achieved a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator -- America's premier charity evaluator for sound fiscal management, commitment to accountability, and transparency. Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that CCFA adheres to good governance and that we consistently execute our mission in a fiscally responsible way.
