About Fund A Cure
JDRF’s mission is the same today as when it was founded in 1970
by a small group of parents—to find a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its
complications through the support of research. Today, JDRF is the largest
charitable funder of T1D research. Thanks to the tireless efforts of tens of
thousands of supporters, we have driven major scientific advances that have
resulted in life-changing therapies for the millions of people who live with
this disease. JDRF is now the only organization with the scientific resources,
regulatory influence, and a strategic research plan to end the disease.
Together, we are working toward a world without T1D.
JDRF offers individuals and companies the opportunity to
contribute directly to T1D research through our Fund A Cure campaign, by making
a 100% tax-deductible contribution that directly funds JDRF research.
