Gifts can be made online or by contacting the chapter at Thank you!

Individual memberships start at only $30. Renew or join today!


Third Party Events - These are volunteer-led fundraisers that benefit CCFA. Throughout the year we have people climbing Mt. Rainier, sailing the Strait of Juan De Fuca, rocking out at the Showbox, playing music in the park, and much more. Have an idea on how you can help CCFA? Contact Kelsi Messling at

Volunteer Committees & Opportunities - Volunteers make CCFA the successful Foundation it is. We have planning committees for Take Steps, the Benefit Luncheon and our Flag Football tournament and we would love to have you join us. Looking for less of a commitment? We need office and event day volunteers as well. Click here to view all of our volunteer opportunities. Contact Kelsi Messling at


Workplace Giving - Many companies (Microsoft, Starbucks, Bank of America to name a few) will match your contributions to CCFA! Contact your HR department to find out if your company has a matching gift program. If so, look up CCFA. You could be doubling or tripling your commitment to finding a cure!


Talk About Us - Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (@ccfanw)! Awareness of IBD and CCFA is crucial to increasing the quality of lives of patients.
