The Diabetes Youth Foundation of Indiana (DYFI) is a local 501c3 non-profit with a mission and passion to educate, encourage, and empower children living with Type 1 diabetes, while providing support to their families. All donations made to the DYFI stay right here in Indiana and support our campers! While majority of our funding goes toward making camp affordable for all families, we are also in need of donations to help keep camp vibrant and running. This includes repairs, new structures to expand, and more!
Check out below to find out how you can donate to the DYFI!
If you would prefer to send a check, please make the check out to the Diabetes Youth Foundation of Indiana, 5050 E. 211th St. Noblesville, IN 46062.
Thank you for your support!
Dr. Dan Pollom spent summer after summer as a lead medical staff at Camp Until A Cure! He not only loved the kids, but he was kind and fun loving. Having Type 1 diabetes himself, he was one of the first medical staff who could relate completely with the kids. His diabetes philosophy of care, understanding, and balance will live on at camp! If you would like to make a memorial contribution in his honor, please click on the link below:
