The Fund A Cure portion of our gala provides an opportunity for our supporters to consider making a donation allowing 100% of your contribution to fund research. Fund A Cure gifts are often made in honor or in memory of someone with direction connections to T1D. All Fund A Cure contributions are entirely tax deductible.
Fund A Cure donations may be made prior to the gala or during the Fund A Cure portion of our gala program. With the hopes you are planning to attend our gala, the Fund A Cure gifts may be made during the ‘call to action’ portion of the evening.
Research is at the heart of JDRF and our organization is closer than ever to finding the cure. In September of 2016, JDRF proudly announced that the FDA approved the Artificial Pancreas System. This announcement was a group success that could not have been accomplished without the dedication of JDRF, its many partners, the research teams and the support of the diabetes community overall.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research and because of generous donor and partner support, we have been able to direct over $2 billion toward research. JDRF is an organization built on a grassroots model of people connecting in their local communities, collaborating regionally for efficiency and broader fundraising impact, and uniting on a national stage to pool resources, passion, and energy. JDRF collaborates with academic institutions, policymakers, and corporate and industry partners to develop and deliver a pipeline of innovative therapies to people living with T1D. Our vision is to create a world without T1D. For more information, please visit jdrf.org or follow us on Twitter: @JDRF.
