Make an impact in diabetes research and donate today!

The Order of the Amaranth and the American Diabetes Association® have worked together to fund numerous researchers and their cutting-edge work in the fight against diabetes. 

The Amaranth Diabetes Foundation, Inc. (ADF) is a 501c3 organization that serves as the charitable arm of the Order. Since its inception in 1979, ADF donates all monies it raises in the United States to the American Diabetes Association®, where 100% of the funds support promising diabetes research. Our International Order also funds research in their respective areas to help stop the spread of diabetes. 

The ADF recognizes that diabetes is a devastating disease that affects more than 37 million Americans and countless others around the world. Statistics show that 1.2 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year and it is for this reason that the ADF has been a strong supporter of the American Diabetes Association and its research.

Who we are

The Order of the Amaranth is a fraternal, social, charitable, and philanthropic organization comprised of both men and women with Masonic affiliation.
We share in social activities to promote the growth of our Order. Although a belief in the existence of a Supreme Being is foremost to being a member, we welcome many faiths represented within our membership. Our Ritual is an integral part of our Order and emphasizes the values of everyday life, founded on the sublime teachings of Truth, Faith, Wisdom and Charity. It is by these teachings we strive for our own self-satisfaction and improvement while working with those who are in need of our help and assistance.

Our primary philanthropic endeavor is the Amaranth Diabetes Foundation, Inc. that raises funds which are provided, in the form of grants, to researchers selected by the American Diabetes Association. We are proud that 100% of the funds raised are provided for use by the ADF as the Foundation is elected from our membership and no administrative expenses are incurred. Through these donations, we hope our efforts will ultimately help in finding a cure for Diabetes. We also fund scholarships for Masonic related youth attending college.
