Actually, CCFA is rated 3rd in the country in terms of research percentage of expense.
CCFA, unlike other health foundations, is dedicated to finding a cure thru research, but because they are supporting people with a chronic disease, they also understand the importance of offering support and education services. Other wonderful organizations like JDRF put all money towards research, because that is their entire mission: RESEARCH. CCFA is commtied to research, education/support and better treatment options.
CCFA's actual Mission statement is: To cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these disease.
