Mission Statement


The 216 Foundation exists to assist in the search for and successful creation of a cure for diabetes by providing financial support to organizations and programs dedicated to the search for a cure.  We are a registered not-for-profit organization.

The 216 Foundation was created in memory of Norma Adkins and in Honor of Ryan Smolenski

“I created The 216 Foundation with a desire to make a difference. Diabetes is very prevalent in my family, and I wanted to do something to find a cure. My focus with the organization is to raise capital to fund scientists in their research. This is essentially accomplished with upscale events and through recurring revenue via electronic donations. I never dreamt in a million years that the foundation could be so much work, yet so rewarding.”
— Eric Isham, Founder
