Giving Overview

It is estimated that up to 5% of the US population – over 10 million Americans – exhibit hoarding behavior – and that’s ONLY ONE of the many issues that complicate the lives of chronically disorganized (CD) individuals and the people around them.

Research shows that excessive clutter and disorganization can be symptoms of a larger health problem. Emotional trauma, brain injury, attention deficit disorder, depression, chronic pain and grief often prevent people from getting organized or, in some cases, lead to an abundance of clutter.

Quality of life is negatively affected on a daily basis.

ICD is the leader in providing support for individuals and the research community worldwide. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) this valuable work is done thanks to our dedicated subscribers and donors.


Our goal is to continue to:

  • Provide education to professional organizers and related professionals that will benefit chronically disorganized people.
  • Collaborate with leading professionals in the cutting edge study of chronic disorganization.
  • Pursue research opportunities around CD issues and publish these findings.


There are many ways YOU can help:

Donations & Tributes ♦ Grants ♦ Sponsorship ♦ Advertising ♦ Providing Products and Services "In-Kind"

Your generosity will allow those challenged with CD issues to live the lives they have only dreamed about and inspire those who dedicate their professional lives to help them make these dreams reality.
