Diabetes Hands Foundation has a Fiscal Sponsor: Community Initiatives

A few weeks ago, in a previous blog post, we mentioned the Diabetes Hands Foundation (DHF), the nonprofit that runs TuDiabetes.com and EsTuDiabetes.com, had applied for a fiscal sponsorship (you can read more about what a Fiscal Sponsor is here).

We are very happy to inform all members of TuDiabetes.com that DHF recently received approval from Community Initiatives to become our Fiscal Sponsor.

What does this mean to you?
This will allow any donations you make to us through our fiscal sponsor to be treated as a charitable tax deduction.

As a result, we will soon be changing the yellow Donate button on the right side of the page (which currently goes to PayPal), to a new button that will link to the Support the Diabetes Hands Foundation page on the Community Initiatives web site.

We wanted to inform you officially about this, since we are in the planning stages of a fundraising campaign, to start in late August.

Great news!



congratulations! What you’ve done with this community is very inspiring to me. Thanks for all your hard work and continued success. you definitely deserve it.

They are indeed a great fiscal sponsor to have. I am glad that you are happy with the news! :slight_smile:

This is fantastic news! Thanks for working to make this happen, and thanks to Community Initiatives for accepting DHF!

GREAT NEWS, MANNY! I know how long you’ve waited and how hard you’ve worked for this. Now if only the Federal Government could move into high gear, spend some stimulus money to hire some more people in the 501c3 review committee, and get you the rest of the way. :slight_smile:

Congratulations and thanks.
