How to Donate Your Data and Support Diabetes Non-Profit Organizations

You can support other diabetes non-profit organizations through the Tidepool Big Data Donation Project. Any time an industry partner uses Tidepool's paid dataset qualification services and your donated dataset is selected, Tidepool will donate 10% of the proceeds to a non-profit organization of your choice. 

For more information on the Tidepool Big Data Donation Project,  please read this blog post.
