Guidelines

DONOR GUIDELINES

The generosity of our donors sustains our commitment to quality, independence, and impact and makes possible our efforts to provide practical, effective and non-clinical solutions to the diabetic community.

COURAGEndures actively seeks support from a diverse group of donors to ensure that no single person, entity, or industry can be perceived to have influence on the experiences or recommendations produced by our Foundation. All potential sources and terms of support undergo a thorough internal review that ensures our absolute commitment to independence and our full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

COURAGEndures is committed to transparency in our funding relationships. In each year’s Annual Report, we publish a full list of donors, grouped into ranges of gift amount. The COURAGEndures Annual Report (including this list) will be available here on the COURAGEndures website or by requesting a report via our Contact page.

COURAGEndures provides a number of ways for donors to get involved in the active life of the Foundation. Donors also can choose to receive periodic communications from the Foundation that highlights recent programs and experiences via our newsletter.

**All donors should consult with their professional tax advisor regarding the tax deductibility of their gift.
