It takes one minute to take a stand against diabetes. 

Do you have one minute to spare? Every 23 seconds, someone is diagnosed with diabetes in the United States, but donating only takes one minute to make a meaningful difference in the lives of millions. The American Diabetes Association® (ADA) is leading the fight against diabetes and has made great strides thanks to the support from donors and advocates like you. However, the work is not over.

The stats don’t lie. Over 37 million Americans have diabetes. Of that number, over 28 million are diagnosed and 8.5 million don’t know they have it. Your donation today will fuel our fight by funding critical, lifesaving research that will, one day, find a cure. Until then, we're standing tall and doing everything we can to improve the lives of everyone affected by diabetes by discovering improved treatments, new medications, and advanced prevention strategies. Donating takes just one minute to help millions. Can we count on your support?
