An endowment gift is designed to fund IBD research and education for years to come. The principal amount is protected in perpetuity and each year the income produced supports Crohn’s and Colitis Canada. They can be made at any time, or left through your will. Endowments help fund new Chairs (prominent hospital-based expert) and new Professorships (prestigious university-based researcher) in a commitment to explore particular areas of IBD research.
