2019 End of Year Giving
A gift to the Year-End Campaign supports all IOCDF programs and initiatives in 2020. This includes training therapists to treat OCD, providing resources to people through our websites, helping parents identify OCD and anxiety, distributing the Transition Packet to treatment facilities, and much more!

25 Years of Research Grant Funding

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. Your donation could help fund the next breakthrough in OCD research!

Help us overcome OCD — the #BullyInside
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 supports pediatric programs like AnxietyintheClassroom.org, a resource designed to reduce the negative impact of anxiety and OCD on youth in the school setting.

Conference Scholarship Fund

Each year, over 2,000 people gather at the Annual OCD Conference to learn, train, network, and access an amazing community of hope and support. In an effort to make the Annual OCD Conference as accessible as possible, the IOCDF offers scholarships to attend the Conference to individuals who would otherwise not be able to afford to attend due to financial hardship. The scholarships provided are a direct result of the generous gifts to our Conference Scholarship Fund.
