Meet Our Donors
Lisa Peters, a DC Global Group Leader, on why she gives monthly:
I donate monthly because I want to prioritize RESULTS in my finances and help provide a stable source of funding for our work.

Having my donation deducted monthly means that I will stay financially committed and accountable to this organization that I so admire.

I want something positive to happen out of my passing.” Read more.
“I’ve always had a fire in my belly working for the underserved, so RESULTS is a natural place for me to explore advocacy on a bigger level,” says Dr. Diana Fertsch, a pediatrician in Baltimore. Diana sees the tragedies caused by our nations’ flawed health system daily. Read more.
