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 2013 (January 1, 2013-December 31, 2013). Our IRS Form 990 for 2013 is available here.
Our 2014-2016 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.
We made tremendous strides with our 2011-2013 strategic plan. Investment in research increased, patient service programs expanded, and awareness elevated. Now, we must build upon these achievements to accelerate the advancement of IBD research and improve the quality of life of our patients. Achieving this vision requires prioritizing strategies and tactics that most directly impact our goals.
Our Strategic Plan is 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.
