1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk Fundraising

Each June, the OCD and related disorders community bands together for the 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk. All registered walkers receive a fundraising page, which they can personalize with photos, video, and their story so they can share how OCD has affected their life and why fundraising for the IOCDF and its Local Affiliates is important to them. Whether you register for the flagship Boston Walk, one of the 20+ Affiliate-hosted events, or the Community Walk your fundraising efforts will have a lasting impact. Register and start fundraising today!

Monthly Giving

When you give monthly it’s easy and cost-effective and provides important financial resources we can count on. Start your monthly giving by donating online, then select the “make this a monthly donation” box and complete the rest of the form.

Honorary and Memorial Giving

You can contribute to the IOCDF in honor of someone special in your life or in memory of a lost loved one. You can make an honorary or memorial gift online, by mail or on the phone. At your request, IOCDF will send a letter to the individual or family notifying them of your thoughtful gift if you provided their contact information. The amount of your gift will not be disclosed.

You can also create and customize a fundraising page for your loved one and collect donations in their honor or memorial.
