Voices of Progress Highlights Accomplishments During Financially Challenging Environment

New York, New York (PRWEB) September 10, 2009 -- The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America, the leading nonprofit aimed at finding a cure for the 1.4 million Americans living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, chronic and painful digestive diseases, today announced that its 2008 Annual Report, Voices of Progress is available at http://www.ccfa.org/about/annual_report.

The 2008 fiscal year was a watershed year for the Foundation as it reached new fundraising and research milestones. Over $15.5 million was invested in research this year, roughly two and a half times what the Foundation allocated only a couple of years ago. This allowed the Foundation to fund 53 research projects, an excellent accomplishment in what continues to be a financially challenging environment. The report shows how donated funds are being well spent in support of the organization's research and other key initiatives.

"This year's annual report serves well as a reminder of what a committed organization can accomplish," says Richard J. Geswell, President of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America. "Not only has the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation doubled its research investment in only a few years, but expanded its advocacy and patient and professional programs on a local and national level, reaching new heights, delivering up-to-date, critical information and support to the Crohn's and colitis community."

In the world of basic and clinical research, Crohn's & Colitis Foundation investments became highly visible during this fiscal year. The report prominently features the progress by top scientists and physicians in the Foundation's Human Gut Microbiome
