Memorial Gift

A memorial gift, in memory of someone important to you, is a donation made after someone passes to memorialize their life. By giving a memorial gift in memory of a family member or friend, you not only affirm your values, but recognize that these values were shared by the individual being honored.

A memorial gift to the American Diabetes Association® (ADA) is always meaningful and a special way to honor someone impacted by diabetes. 

Nearly one in two Americans has diabetes or prediabetes. It’s a disease that affects us all and it will take us all to stop it. Your donation will make a real difference in our efforts to end diabetes forever. You can donate to the ADA in a person’s name or ask others to make donations in their name.
