Why we fight type 1 diabetes
JDRF wants a world without T1D
You’re the reason for our success.
Every dollar we put toward research comes from donations. So when you support JDRF with your time, talent, voice and, yes, your money, you enable us to advance even more research.
There are many ways to join the JDRF family, but for 47 years there has been only one reason—because we are the organization that will turn Type One into Type None.
We have some of the best ratings for an organization focused on a single disease from charity watchdog groups and media. In 2012, Forbes named JDRF one of its five “All-Star” charities, based on its evaluation of our financial efficiency.
What’s in a name? A bit of “JDRF” history
- To remove the misconception that T1D is only a childhood disease
- To acknowledge that nearly 85 percent of people living with the disease are over age 18
- To reinforce our commitment to funding research that improves life for people at all ages and all stages of the disease
