Ways To Give

General Donation

These donations will be put into the general fund to help support the DFM's many programs and services, including our Helping Hands patient assistance program and Camp Kandu for children with diabetes and their families!

Memorial Donation

A memorial gift is a great way to celebrate the life of someone you love. An acknowledgment will be sent to the person of your choice.

Tribute Donation

Make a difference and honor a loved one by making a donation in their name to make a lasting and possibly life-saving difference for those living with diabetes. Your gift will assist the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi in funding research and providing education, emergency medical assistance and services to all children and adults whose lives are affected by diabetes. All money raised stays in Mississippi to help Mississippians.

There are many occasions for celebration for which you may wish to contribute:

  • In honor of special birthdays
