What happens to my contribution if a project I sponsored fails to reach its fundraising goal?

Wherever possible, the Diabetes Research Connection may supplement up to 20% of funding for projects that have raised some, but not all of the money they need for their project. In the event the organization has no discretionary funding available, the Board will work with the researcher in an effort to modify the project and budget and still achieve important results. If a project cannot be fully funded after exhausting all options, we will re-allocate the funds to other projects or to our General Fund.

Donors who have contributed $5,000 or more to such a project may redirect the funds to a different project, or opt to have their donation returned.
