THE AMERICAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION

The American Diabetes Association is the nation's leading 501(C)3 nonprofit charity fighting against diabetes and its deadly consequences.

The moving force behind the work of the Association is a network of more than one million volunteers, a membership of more than 500,000 people with diabetes, their families and caregivers, a professional society of nearly 16,000 health care professionals, as well as more than 800 staff members

Nearly 30 million children and adults in this country are diagnosed with diabetes, so the mission we have is an urgent one. Everything we do forms the underpinning for that mission: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes..

HOW MANY ARE AFFECTED BY DIABETES*?

  • 29.1 million: The estimated number of children and adults in the United States who have diabetes.
  • 86 million: The estimated number of Americans who have prediabetes.
  • 1.7 million: The number of new cases of diabetes diagnosed in people aged 20 years or older in 2012.
  • 1 in 3 children born in the year 2000 will develop diabetes in their lifetime if current trends continue. The ratio is even greater for minority children with 1 in 2 developing diabetes in their lifetime.
  • Based on recently announced diagnostic criteria for gestational diabetes, it is estimated that gestational diabetes affects 18% of pregnancies. Prior studies have shown women who have had gestational diabetes are at risk (of up to 60%) for developing diabetes in the next 10 to 20 years.

*Statistics released by the CDC in January 2014

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

RESEARCH

Since the American Diabetes Association launched its Research Programs in 1952, it has funded nearly 4,500 research projects, investing more than $700 million in diabetes research.

In 2014 alone, the Association funded 376 new and continuing research grants and made nearly $30 million in diabetes research funding available through its four major grant programs: the Core Research Program, the Pathway to Stop Diabetes? Program, Research Co-Support, and Collaborative Targeted Research. These funds supported 364 investigators at 143 leading academic research institutions across the U.S.

INFORMATION

The Association provides the public and health care professionals with the most up-to-date information to help take a stand against diabetes through our Center for Information and Community Support (1-800-DIABETES) and two web sites, www.diabetes.org and www.stopdiabetes.com, as well as via consumer and professional books and periodicals. The organization has offices in communities across the country and serves the public through a multitude of programs and activities including American Diabetes Association Expos, Diabetes Camps, and outreach to high-risk populations through its Por tu Familia, Live Empowered! and Native American initiatives. In 2014, 5,400 youth attended one of the 50 Association Camps hosted in 24 states.

ADVOCACY

The Association fights on behalf of the diabetes community to increase federal funding for diabetes research and programs, improve comprehensive health care and insurance coverage, and to end discrimination against people with diabetes. Explore the Advocacy section on our main ADA website and learn what is being done on a local and national level to support people with diabetes, and also learn how you can get involved in those efforts.

WE ARE TRUSTWORTHY

An impressive 73% of every dollar spent supports research, advocacy, and services for people affected by diabetes.

The Association holds the Better Business Bureau's (BBB) Wise Giving Alliance Seal for National Charities. The BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluates each charity's governance, fundraising practices, solicitations and informational materials, as well as how it spends its money. The Alliance's standards of measurement hold charitable organizations to higher principles than those required by law, thereby making the seal convey a strong and comprehensive confirmation of each organization's accountability. Every gift is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law and the donor will receive an acknowledgment for his or her donation.
