When you donate to Diabetes Canada’s Endowment Fund, your gift will generate revenue for Diabetes Canada forever.

An endowment fund is an investment that is set aside for the long-term support of Diabetes Canada. A portion of the annual income that the fund generates is used to support important diabetes research. The remaining income is reinvested in the fund to ensure that the original capital is protected against the effects of inflation.

How it works

  1. You make a gift of cash, stocks, bonds or mutual funds to Diabetes Canada.
  2. You receive a tax receipt for the full amount of your gift.
  3. Your donation is added to the endowment fund, which holds an accumulation of donations from other endowment fund donors.
  4. The endowment fund is invested under the direction of Diabetes Canada’s investment policy.
  5. Each year, a specific percentage of the income earned on the fund is used to support diabetes research. The balance of the income earned is reinvested.
  6. The original amount of your gift is never spent – only the income earned is used.
  7. Your gift is a lasting legacy that will generate income for Diabetes Canada in perpetuity.
