Our Financials: Financial Statements and Reports of Independent Certified Public Accountants
Eighty-two cents of every dollar CCFA spends goes to research, education, and support services. CCFA meets the standards of the Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance, and has received an "A-" rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy. CCFA is also listed at Guidestar.
In addition, here are the financial statements and reports of independent certified public accountants for CCFA's fiscal year 2011 (January 1, 2011-December 31, 2011). Our IRS Form 990 for 2011 will be available online in the fall.
Our Strategic Plan
Since 1967, the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) has led the way in research, advocacy, and patient support for those suffering from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Through the vision of our founders, Irwin and Suzanne Rosenthal, William and Shelby Modell, and Dr. Henry Janowitz, CCFA has become the national beacon of hope for those suffering with inflammatory bowel diseases.
The 2011-2013 strategic planning effort, launched in 2010, builds on the organizational strengths that have developed over the last 40 years. Our course is direct, our vision sure, and our mission unwavering. With input from well over 300 volunteers and staff, the 2013 Strategic Plan charts a course for the future.
Having and following a strategic plan sets successful organizations apart from those that merely muddle along. Our Strategic Plan will be relevant to all components of the organization as annual operating plans are developed. It represents a blueprint, and will serve as a roadmap for how we will proceed as one organization to accomplish our mission and goals.
