Digestive disorders affect millions of people of all ages – from children and teens to young and mature adults. Whether you or someone you know suffers from a chronic digestive disorder, you know the affects the symptoms can have on daily life. Symptoms can range from mild to debilitating. The social and economic consequences are immense; the loss of human potential immeasurable.

You Can Make a Difference

Many functional gastrointestinal and motility disorders remain poorly understood. Awareness, education, and research to help manage and find cures are very much needed. By getting involved with IFFGD, you can help answer these needs.

By making a donation, starting a fundraiser, signing up to receive our e-Newsletter, advocating for research for digestive health, or even telling someone about our website, you provide support to those that are affected by these debilitating conditions. Your time, your dollars, and your commitment can help to someday find cures and change people’s lives.

The International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders, Inc. is a registered 501(c)3, Wisconsin nonstock, nonprofit corporation. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
