Give the gift of education
this holiday season

The more you give, the more we give back!


Your donation will educate, motivate and inspire the people who need it most!

*$175 is the cost to TCOYD for one conference attendee.




All of us at TCOYD sincerely appreciate that you are considering supporting us to make everything we do possible in order to change the lives of those who need it most. Each year TCOYD is honored to award over 1000 scholarships to those in need, making it possible for the recipients to receive life changing education at a TCOYD event. It costs TCOYD $175 to host each recipient for the day, totaling $175,000 per year. This is where we need your help.

This holiday season we ask for your help to reach even more people. The more you are able to give the more we can give back the gift of education. Here’s how it works: For each of the three donor levels, TCOYD will give you one or more copies of Dr. Edelman’s book, based on your giving level. We hope that with this book, you too can give the gift of education this holiday season by giving it to someone in need. This is our way of saying thank you and another way we continue to drive our mission forward.

The entire TCOYD family wishes you and amazing holiday season. We continue to be so grateful for everything you do for us and we hope to see you connecting with TCOYD in the near future.

We stand with you to give alongside you through our life changing programs and platforms:

National TCOYD Conference & Health Fair: An all-day life-changing conference experience that aims to educate, empower & inspire people to TAKE CONTROL of their type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

San Diego Spotlight Series: Relaxed & fun educational evenings featuring a variety of rotating topics, the latest research and diabetes management strategies.

TCOYD Registration Assistance Program: Provide conference registration assistance to those wanting to attend a TCOYD event but experiencing financial hardship.

TCOYD Website & Blog: Our interactive hub providing the most cutting-edge research, news, tips and advice, including our bustling, supportive and sharing social community.

—every interaction made possible, makes life with diabetes, better.


Nancy Crowe

My youngest son developed type 1 at age eight. Frightened and desperate to learn, I discovered TCOYD. Over the past 15 years TCOYD has provided me with a variety of tools to help our son manage his diabetes. I donate because the education from TCOYD positively impacts people with diabetes & their families.

David & Barbara Groce

We support TCOYD because its emphasis is on educating those of us who have diabetes. The information we learn through TCOYD allows us to be aware of the latest diabetes treatments and developments, some of which aren’t widely known yet. Barbara is a type 1 and David is a type 2.


Lynn Senecal

TCOYD has engaged more individuals with diabetes than I ever could as a Certified Diabetes Educator. I hope more individuals will feel compelled to donate in order to maintain the phenomenal work that TCOYD is accomplishing.
