ICN Donations

Jill Osborne, ICN Founder Ever wonder how a support group works? It's simple. We would normally put out a jar to help underwrite expenses. But, when you're the largest support group in the world with over 20,000 members who participate FOR FREE, it's vitally important that we have funds to keep our services going. Your ICN subscriptions and donations help not only maintain our extensive 24/7 support forum, conduct IC Awareness Month and develop new and much needed educational resources. 100% of your gift goes directly into IC activities!! 
Patients generally help us in two ways. You can subscribe to our magazine, the IC Optimist or you can make a direct donation here! It's your choice and anyway that you can help would be greatly appreciated. 
Five reasons why we think we are deserving of your financial support. 
  • We are the only national IC organization that has an educational phone line and answers patient calls every weekday, all at no charge to our members. 1-800-928-7496 
  • We operate IC Awareness Month at a loss every year because it's so important to get the word out. 
  • We provide this free e-newsletter to more than 20,000 readers each month keeping patients informed of the latest news, research developments, clinical trials and self-help strategies. 
  • Despite very modest funding, we have been rated the TOP (most accurate, credible and reliable) patient website dedicated to IC in research studies done by Harvard Medical School (2011) and the University of London (2013). 
  • We employ IC and/or pelvic pain patients because we believe that patients do have the ability to work and contribute meaningfully to this cause.
We thank you for thinking of us. Please note that your donations & contributions are NOT tax deductible. ICN Founder Jill Osborne is happy to take questions and talk with you about our work, future plans. She can also share her thoughts on how you can support IC research, such as through direct donations to the most productive IC research centers. (707)538-9442 or via email (
