Making a gift in your Will

We won’t stop until we create a world without type 1. A gift in your Will to JDRF will help us achieve it.

Whether it’s an artificial pancreas that mimics a healthy one, insulin-producing cells that can be safely transplanted, or a vaccine that protects everyone from developing the condition, we know the answers we need lie in research.

By leaving a gift in your Will to JDRF, you not only ensure the search for a cure will continue, you will also help make life better for everyone with type 1 in the meantime.

Your gift will:

  • Accelerate world-class research to prevent, treat and cure type 1 – read about our current research projects and meet our researchers
  • Fund clinical trials to deliver ground-breaking technology and therapies
  • Increase access to life-changing treatments for everyone with type 1
  • Work with decision makers so we can fund more type 1 research, more quickly
  • Give support and a voice to people with type 1 and their families
