The act of giving is a very personal matter.
Some give when they learn that there are 29 million Americans and 387 million people worldwide living with diabetes. Typically, however, it's not about startling statistics.
Most people make their giving decisions based on their heart. Those who support the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation want a cure for their loved ones or themselves.
During workplace giving campaings and the Combined Federal Campaign, help offer REAL HOPE to REAL PEOPLE by supporting the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation through your workplace giving campaign. They allow employees in government agencies and private industry to donate through payroll deduction programs.
Not only is your gift tax deductible, but you may even be able to reduce your taxable income by contributing in this way.

Private Sector Campaigns
If you work in private industry, your company may include Health First America’s Charities among the choices in your annual workplace campaign. If your company participates in the United Way campaign only, you can support the DRI by writing “Diabetes Research Institute Foundation” in the space provided for your donor option.
You may need to request a special form from your United Way campaign coordinator to write in your option.
Please check off the section that asks if you want acknowledgement for your gift. That way, the DRIF will know you made a contribution, and we will be able to thank you for your generosity.
If your company only offers the United Way employee giving campaign and you would like to learn about more choices for charitable donations, please call 1-800-321-3437, or contact us.
