Donations are being sought to support The Canadian Institute for Obsessive Compulsive Disorders.

Please join the community of supporters for this urgent cause and contribute
generously to the CIOCD current five million dollar campaign.

Your generosity gives crucial support for CIOCD programs designed to help OCD sufferers through the life span – children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Please see the CIOCD Mission Statement on the “About CIOCD” page of the Institute website for additional information. There are many ways you can contribute. Whether you wish to sponser a fund raising event, join the CIOCD Outreach and Development Committee, or participate in an educational session for patients and families in your region, every gesture of support is appreciated.

Your gift to the CIOCD will help reduce the ongoing suffering and disability associated with OCD through educational, training, and other programs designed to improve the quality and accessibility of specialized clinical care for children, adolescents, and adults in suffering from OCD and related disorders. Your donation may be given in honor of an individual you wish to designate.

Any gift commensurate with your capacity and wish to support this important cause is crucially important. In grateful recognition benefactors at the $ 5000.00 plus level are currently honored by being named CIOCD founding donors.

Major philanthropic gifts to the CIOCD are needed now to allow the CIOCD to respond quickly to the urgent needs of OCD sufferers, for training programs to increase timely accessibility to evidence based specialized treatments for pediatric and adult OCD in your region, and for informational and educational sessions for patients and their families.
