Ways to Contribute


Make a Difference, Your Way

Choose to contribute in the way that works best for you with flexible fundraising options from the American Diabetes Association (ADA).


We're in this Fight to Win

Every day at the American Diabetes Association (ADA), we push back against diabetes. Because there are still too many people developing diabetes, too many people suffering health consequences from diabetes, and too many people not paying attention to diabetes. That’s unacceptable. So we’re standing tall, providing lifechanging programs, standing up for affordable health care, and driving research that can save lives. And with your help, we can do even more to achieve our ultimate goal: End diabetes once and for all.


Walking and Cycling for a Cause

Take part in the fight against diabetes when you join one of our signature fundraising events, Tour de Cure® or Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes®. Whether you're a cycling enthusiast (Tour), love to walk or run (Step Out®), or just want to be a part of an event that supports research, local programming, and advocacy, these fun-filled days of activity, games, and tasty food are for you!

Different Ways to Fundraise

Looking for other ways to raise money to support our mission? Try creating your own fundraiser, DIY style. From game night to a yard sale or anything in between, you can put on a unique event and make it as big (or small) as you want. Or support us while you shop at certain retailers where a percentage of your purchase will be directly donated to fuel the ADA’s mission.
