How your Gift Helps the Diabetes Center
The Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Diabetes Center is committed to helping you or your loved one successfully manage diabetes. Our foremost goal is to help people with diabetes live long and healthy lives by using the latest information, treatments and technology available.
We invite you to help us continue to create an improved quality of life for those living with diabetes by making an investment in our program. Please be assured that our entire team of researchers and clinicians are focused on improving the lives of those living with diabetes and curing this disease for future generations.
Types of Gifts
There are four ways to support the Diabetes Center through charitable giving: cash gifts, matching gifts, tribute giving, or gift planning.
Gifts of all sizes help the Diabetes Center to continue our ongoing efforts as a leader in innovative and compassionate treatment, groundbreaking research, and excellent surgical medical education. Gifts made with a check or credit card provide immediate support to the Department.
Contributions to the Diabetes Center can be unrestricted and used where the need is greatest. Gifts can also be designated to support a specific doctor. Gifts can also be made in memory of a loved one or to honor someone special in your life.
Gifts can be made outright or pledged over a period of up to five years.
Many employers offer a matching gift program to their employees. For every dollar you donate to the Diabetes Center, your employer will match it either dollar for dollar, two dollars to one dollar, or, in more generous cases, three dollars to one dollar. All you need is a Matching Gift Form from your employer’s Public Affairs Department. Complete the section designated for employees and mail the form to us. We will take care of all the other details and paperwork.
There are many opportunities to commemorate family members, friends, or colleagues on a birthday, anniversary, or another special occasion. Gifts can be made to the Diabetes Center in honor of a special physician, for example, who has played a significant role in your health. These gifts are greatly appreciated by the people being honored and their families.
A gift made to the Diabetes Center in memory of a person who has passed away is a special way to honor a beloved friend or family member. Such a gift creates a legacy and memorializes the person by providing direct support to the Department.
Gift planning allows our donors to thoughtfully choose ways of giving that meet their needs—and the needs of the Diabetes Center. A development director from the Department and the Johns Hopkins Institutions, Office of Gift Planning can provide you with information on effective charitable planning options so that you can achieve optimum tax, financial, and philanthropic results.
