funding needs

Although support is growing to build awareness and improve treatment for functional GI and motility disorders, we still have a long way to go. We have asked the National Institutes of Health(NIH) to increase their funding functional GI and motility disorders research. They are still a long way from a level of support that we feel is adequate.

Although support is growing to build awareness and improve treatment for the functional GI disorders, we still have to help ourselves – and each other. Working together, we will make a difference.

There are many ways that you can make a lasting, meaningful contribution to the field of digestive disease research. Here are a few ideas.

 Be a part of the discovery process . . .

Form a Circle of Friends

Send an email or letter to your circle of friends or acquaintances. Be the first contributor (let them know you plan to give $amount to support IFFGD) and ask them to match your donation, or give as much as they are able. We will be happy to provide a sample email/letter along with text to explain specific digestive disorders such as IBS, GERD, incontinence, Hirschsprung’s disease, chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIP), gastroparesis, cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS), or other GI disorders and the need for research support. Collect the donations and forward them to IFFGD, along with contact information for the contributors so we can send personalized thank-you notes. Whether you send 1 or 100 emails or letters, any donations that result will make a positive difference to the work of IFFGD. 

Matching Gifts

Many companies have a mechanism that allows its employees to contribute to a charity while matching the gift. Check with your company. We would be happy to provide them with details about IFFGD and information about digestive disorders.
