In 2023, Connecting to Cure Crohn's and Colitis (CtoC) continued its unwavering commitment to the IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) community. We are proud of our progress, but much work remains to be done. Your support and generosity have changed lives.

Any donation amount from $5-$5000 (or a bid on one of our auction items!) brings us closer to finding new treatments, supporting families and empowering young lives. We focus on grassroots community-building and patient, caregiver and family support. We continue to donate to IBD Research institutions. But we can't do it alone - we need your help to keep making a meaningful impact. With your support, we can continue to inspire hope, progress, meaningful connections and compassion for the IBD community.
