Since 2012, we have been committed to slowing the advance of diabetes and its related complications by aiming to improve the health and wellness of our communities, clients and employees.

Our Team Up Against Diabetes grant program give us the opportunity to directly engage with community organizations and support them in their efforts to improve people's health, prevent type 2 diabetes, and help those living with type 1 diabetes.

We provide programmatic support to 501(c)(3) charities that focus on the following areas:

  • diabetes prevention, awareness, education, and care
  • diabetes management
  • recovery and support from diabetes-related complications
  • obesity prevention 
  • nutritional programs—education, management, and awareness.

Organizations will have the opportunity to select from three grant options: $25,000, $50,000 or $100,000.
