We do not endorse products, but we will support initiatives that increase awareness to DRWF and our activities, and where there is an appropriate message, product or service for people with diabetes. To this end, we have worked to explore meaningful partnership and corporate sponsorship opportunities, where there is a synergy in mission, vision and values. Any potential partnership is assessed for feasibility, compatibility with our own objectives, and risk to ensure there is no detrimental effect to our reputation or fundraising potential. Robust risk assessment supports our desire to only engage in suitable and best value partnerships. Detailed discussion and negotiation ensures that both parties aims are complementary and mutually beneficial. This ensures transparency and integrity in all partnerships.
