Direct Your Gift to a Diabetes Research Project
Each year, individuals, foundations and corporations support the American Diabetes Association’s Research Foundation in a variety of unique ways. One way is to direct your Research Foundation gift to support a currently-funded diabetes research project, providing an excellent opportunity to become personally engaged in an area of diabetes science that is meaningful to YOU.
With a gift of $50,000 or more to the Research Foundation, you will have the opportunity to direct your gift to a currently-funded diabetes research project. In addition, you will become a member of the Pinnacle Society, our prominent giving society of donors who make major gifts of $10,000 or more.
Research projects are selected by the Research Grant Review Committee (RGRC), which is made up of highly-respected scientists in the diabetes research community. Through a sophisticated peer review process, the RGRC ensures that the investigators and projects chosen are of the utmost quality and offer the best promise for understanding and treating diabetes.
The Association supports type 1 and type 2 diabetes research projects that cover the spectrum from islet cell biology and transplantation techniques, to studies in education and behavioral issues. To browse our list of currently funded researchers for an area of diabetes science that suits your interests and passions, please visit our Diabetes Research Database.
For more information on directing your gift to a specific project, please contact Elaine Curran, Director, Principal Giving Research Foundation, at 1-800-676-4065, ext. 3413, or email@example.com.
Or call your regional gift officer at 1-800-676-4065.
