Our Giving

At LifeScan, our goal is to improve the lives of people with diabetes, by supporting local and global organizations that share our passion for advancing patient care through diabetes awareness and education.

Community Involvement

LifeScan provides a foundation for charitable giving, strategic partnerships and volunteerism that enhances the quality of life in our communities and engages our employees. We encourage our employees to volunteer, teach others and support activities that help meet the social, economic and cultural needs of our community.

Charitable Contributions

LifeScan makes donations to non-profit organizations on a local, national and international level. Our largest giving programs are for diabetes summer camps in the United States and the International Diabetes Federation’s Life for a Child Program in the developing world.

LifeScan also works with international relief organizations during natural and man-made disasters, contributing blood glucose testing supplies in times of life-threatening emergencies.


LifeScan proudly sponsors diabetes programs and events, including diabetes camps and community outreach. We sponsor major organizations such as the American Diabetes Association and International Diabetes Federation, as well as patient advocacy groups which provide a voice and local support for individuals and families impacted by diabetes.

It is our intent to invest where we will have the most impact in fulfilling our mission. At this time we are accepting applications for sponsorships “by invitation only”. Please note an invitation does not guarantee support.

LifeScan is proud to support educational activities and programs that help healthcare professionals enhance the care of their patients with diabetes.

Ongoing partnerships between LifeScan and leading organizations in the diabetes industry include: American Association of Diabetes Educators, American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, and International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes.

At this time, we are not accepting new applications for educational grants.

We are proud to support research studies worldwide. Currently, we are not accepting new applications for research funding.
