Riley Sisson Conference Scholarship Fund

Riley Sisson Memorial Conference Scholarship Fund
“Riley believed that the conference was a place where someone suffering with OCD or a related disorder could go and meet others who would understand the struggle of what daily life could be like living with OCD. Riley felt he was at a place where he could share his journey with others in the hope that they too could be inspired”. Margaret Sisson, Mother of Riley Sisson.

Each year more than 1,300 people — including individuals living with OCD, their family members, treatment providers, and others — join the leading experts in OCD and related disorders at the International OCD Foundation’s Annual OCD Conference. In an effort to make the Annual OCD Conference as accessible as possible, the International OCD Foundation offers a scholarship program to individuals who would not otherwise be able to afford to attend the Conference due to financial hardship. Please help someone get help today by making a gift in memory of OCD Advocate Riley Sisson.

Please help us reach our goal to raise $10,000 each year and help 50 individuals living with OCD or related disorders fulfill their desire to attend the Annual OCD Conference and obtain valuable help and information. Click here to make a donation.

About Riley Sisson

The IOCDF established the Riley Sisson Memorial Conference Scholarship Fund in memory of Riley Sisson. Riley was a pioneering advocate for the OCD Community who lost his life to an accidental overdose on September 1, 2014. Riley suffered from severe OCD and addiction. Despite his own struggles, he was always reaching out to others and leading the way to help people who were also struggling. Donations to this fund will make it possible for individuals who want to attend the Annual OCD Conference but cannot due to financial hardship. The Riley Sisson Memorial Conference Scholarship Funds are used to reduce conference registration fees for those who would otherwise not be able to attend. Riley believed strongly that the conference could be a transformational experience. By making a gift today to the Riley Sisson Memorial Conference Scholarship fund you will continue Riley’s commitment to help others to have the opportunity to experience the conference and possibly change their life.
