The Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists' Foundation tackles critical problems impacting the dissemination of Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES) and supports strong and effective partner organizations interested in doing the same. We believe that good stewardship means maximizing our resources, including grant funding and staff time, while building strong partnerships based on trust. We aim to structure grants in a way that makes sense from a financial perspective while also funding partners for the cost of delivering results efficiently, supported by open and honest dialogue about the resources required. We welcome partners to contact the foundation if they have questions about this policy. Our finance team can help clarify appropriate treatment of costs under the foundation’s indirect cost policy.
