Plan Your Gifts for the Greatest Impact

Each year millions of Americans make gifts in support of charitable purposes of their choice. In today’s environment, these gifts are more important than ever in helping fund the work of American Diabetes Association.

The Association fights back against diabetes in a number of ways, including: funding research to prevent, manage and cure diabetes, delivering services to hundreds of communities, providing credible and objective information and giving a voice to those who may otherwise not be heard.

As you consider your goals for the future, you may want to explore ways to continue your support of the American Diabetes Association through a planned gift in your will or estate plan. Many of these gifts will not only further the work of the Association, but will also feature benefits to you, such as tax savings or increased income in your retirement years.
