Great news! We have now made it even easier—and faster—to help support the work that Crohn’s and Colitis Canada’s researchers do.

By texting CURE to 20222 you can make a quick $25 donation to Crohn’s and Colitis Canada in support of our key research programs.

There are so many promising research projects to fund and we are working really hard to support as many projects as possible despite the impact of COVID-19. As the largest health charity funder of research in Canada, our IBD researchers are depending on us. If we all chip in, we could fund more research projects—and every research project is a new opportunity for a cure or a life-changing treatment. In 2018/19 alone, Crohn’s and Colitis Canada funded 47 research projects and initiatives…and for every $1 we invested, $5 were leveraged from government and industry. 

By making a one-time donation by texting CURE to 20222, $25 will be added to your mobile phone bill or deducted from your prepaid balance. All donations must be authorized by the account holder. All charges are billed by and payable to your mobile service provider. Donations are collected for the benefit of Crohn’s and Colitis Canada by the Mobile Giving Foundation Canada and subject to the terms found here.

Once you’ve made your donation through text, you can request a tax receipt from the Mobile Giving Foundation Canada, on their website, here.

Unfortunately, those using SaskTel as a mobile phone carrier will not be able to use this service to donate. However, if this affects you, you can still give to help support our research initiatives! Please visit our donation page here if you’d like to make a gift. 

Thank you so much for helping us to grow support for our research programs!
