Donate and Help Change Lives

On average, it can take an individual with OCD up to 17 years from the onset of symptoms to access effective treatment. With your support, we can change that statistic.

Your donation to the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) supports our work to drive change through advocacy, education, research, and resources that improve the lives of those living with OCD and related disorders.

Take a look at the different areas where you can support the IOCDF:

Like a bully, OCD gets in the way of a child’s education, creates tremendous worry and distress, and can ultimately rob a young person of their childhood. Your gift helps to fight the bully inside by supporting our pediatric programs like, a resource designed to reduce the negative impact of anxiety and OCD on youth in the school setting.

A gift to the Annual Fund will support the work of the IOCDF and will provide vital support in the efforts to educate, raise awareness, and improve access to desperately needed resources for people living with OCD and related disorders, their families, and treatment providers.

A gift to the Research Grant Fund helps award grants to investigators whose research focuses on the nature, causes, and treatment of OCD and related disorders.
