Donate to the Research Grant Fund

In 2007, Jonathan S. Abramowitz, PhD, ABPP, received an IOCDF Research Grant to study couple-based cognitive behavioral therapy for people with OCD. Watch this short video to learn more about his research findings.

The International OCD Foundation is committed to finding and promoting the most effective treatment methods for OCD and related disorders. Research is vital to our goals of better understanding OCD and related disorders, and improving treatment. The International OCD Foundation Research Grant Fund has distributed over $3 million dollars since its inception in 1994 to investigators researching OCD and related disorders, however, its ability to fund future research depends on your continued support. There is truly no better time to make research your philanthropic priority.

The IOCDF knows that many of our donors may have a particular area of research that most interests them, which is why we have made it possible for donors to direct their gift in support of a specific area of OCD or related disorder research, or you may also choose to donate to the General Research Fund which allows us to direct your gift to the most promising OCD and related disorders studies each year, regardless of topic area.

  • General Research Fund
