Create Your Own ICA Fundraising Page


ICARE_Logo-fullIf you want to help increase IC awareness, support research, and educate patients and healthcare providers, it’s now easier than ever. ICA has launched ICare, a new online fundraising tool that allows you to set up your own web page to tell your personal IC story and invite others to support ICA’s work in IC awareness, research, and education. Friends and family can make secure donations through your web page and receive an immediate email acknowledgement of their tax-deductible contribution. No filling out checks, no finding a stamp to mail it in, and no waiting to get a receipt. And they’re helping you support your patient advocacy organization and personal cause.

ICA owes special thanks to the first ten who have already set up their own donation pages and set personal fundraising goals.

ICA’s ICare pioneers are:

  • Kaye Caldwell
  • Michelle Crandall
  • Blair Davey
  • Michelle Griffin
  • Catherine Horine
  • Amy Lipson
  • Jessica Mason
  • Stacey Gili McFetridge
  • Nicole Mehall
  • Jo Moller
  • Alyssa Reynolds
  • Joyce Street
  • Barb & Eric Zarnikow
