Workplace Giving

Over 30 million children and adults in the U.S. have diabetes. That’s 1 in 11 Americans. Nearly everyone is touched by this disease; by giving to the American Diabetes Association, employees will raise critical funds that will help accelerate research to prevent, treat, manage, and ultimately cure diabetes.

What is Workplace Giving?

Workplace giving is an easy and efficient way to make tax-deductible donations to charities through payroll contributions. By choosing the American Diabetes Association (ADA) as your Workplace Giving charity, your employees will be supporting the most socially relevant health issue of the century.

How can the American Diabetes Association support your Workplace Giving Campaign?

A dedicated staff member will help develop and execute a unique, co-branded workplace giving campaign with us by providing sample messaging, internal email templates and a series of Mission Posters that will help illustrate the work of the ADA and the impact of a recurring payroll contribution:

Do More for Advocacy

Your gift of $500 could send help send Diabetes Advocates to Call to Congress to advocate for key federal priorities that will save lives.

Do More for Youth

A gift of $750 could send a child living with type 1 diabetes to day camp for a week.

Do More for Wellness

A gift of $1000 could provide 500 adults newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes our “Where Do I Begin” guide to help them live well with diabetes.

Do More for Research

A gift of $1,250 could help fund more research for a future free of diabetes and all its burdens.

How will your Company and Employees Benefit from Workplace Giving Partnership?

Make A Significant Impact

Diabetes is a leading concern for many corporations and their employees as it impacts the bottom-line for healthcare insurance costs and employee productivity.  A workplace giving campaign is a brilliant employee focused initiative which increases employee giving power to a cause important to them. You’ll also have the added benefit of a greater level of employee satisfaction and engagement and reduced employee turnover.
