Stay tuned for grant announcements and future funding opportunities by signing up for our mailing list, below.

Grants will be awarded to a diverse portfolio of community-based organizations supporting people living with Type 1 diabetes to gain access to high-quality treatment or other forms of medical, social, economic, or emotional care. The T1D Community Fund will provide:
  • Core support for direct-service organizations with a primary programmatic focus on Type 1 diabetes or
  • Program-specific support for Type 1 diabetes activities implemented by organizations with multiple programmatic focuses or a broader non-communicable disease strategy.
Type 1 diabetes does not need to be the primary focus of the applicant organization as long as there is specific Type 1 diabetes work that will be the focus of grant support. Programs that address Type 1 diabetes as part of a larger diabetes initiative must demonstrate specific programming for Type 1 diabetes that will be supported by this grant.

Proposals should focus on demonstrating applicants’ ability to use grant funding to advance community-level impact on Type 1 diabetes. The T1D Community Fund has purposefully kept parameters for proposals broad in order to encourage a diverse set of applications. The most competitive proposals will demonstrate:
  • A track record for serving community members
  • Potential for improving the lives of people living with Type 1 diabetes and their families
  • A clear description of how grant funds will sustain and/or scale current work in Type 1 diabetes
Typical awards are expected to range from USD$25,000 to 40,000 per year.

Grant terms will range from 1 to 2 years.

Through this funding opportunity, The T1D Community Fund seeks to advance:

  • The impact of community-based organizations working to improve the lives of people living with Type 1 diabetes
  • Opportunities for collaboration between community-based organizations
  • Learning on needs, challenges, and opportunities to better support the Type 1 diabetes community in the future

  • Able to accept funding via a traditional banking system (defined as a financial institution that is regulated at a national or regional level, depending on the country in which it is located).
