JDRF is the leading global nonprofit funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Our strength lies in our exclusive focus on the worldwide effort to end T1D and the power of our volunteers. Founded in 1970 by parents determined to find a cure for their children with T1D, JDRF has expanded to become the largest charitable supporter of T1D research in the world. Our community  — of more than 70 U.S. chapters and international Affiliates, and 1 million volunteers —is dedicated to creating a world without T1D.

Our mission is to improve lives today and tomorrow by accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications.

People with T1D are able to benefit from JDRF-funded  innovations because of our donors. For every $1 donated, JDRF, through advocacy and research funding, attracts an additional $2.60 from government and industry partnerships. Last year, our donors contributed nearly $100 million for T1D research — and JDRF leveraged those funds to attract an additional $260 million to the field.

In our quest to find a cure for T1D and improve the lives of those living with the disease, JDRF has transformed the scientific understanding of T1D. Since our founding, we have directed nearly $5 billion to researching a cure. From the creation of engineered insulin to the production of the first artificial pancreas system, JDRF has been the link between research breakthroughs and the T1D community. We coordinate clinical trials to ensure new therapies are thoroughly and quickly evaluated, and we keep the pressure on so people living with T1D can take advantage of every innovation.

Our advocacy team in Washington, D.C., is powered by our grassroots volunteers across the country. They work tirelessly to ensure government support for T1D technologies by communicating the financial, medical and emotional costs of T1D to Members of Congress. We also work with insurance providers and healthcare companies to promote fair and affordable coverage of T1D therapies.

From the day of diagnosis to daily life decades later, JDRF supports and connects people in the T1D community to help them live better lives. Whether you’re interested in joining a vibrant online T1D community or local chapter, are seeking to enter a clinical trial, in need of advice from someone who’s been there or looking for educational tools to help you or your loved one manage the disease— JDRF is ready to help.

Every gift takes us one step closer to a cure for T1D. Find out how you can support JDRF and make a difference in the lives of people with T1D by visiting jdrf.org/donate.
