Why choose JDRF?

We are the leading global type 1 diabetes charity and have consistently been at the forefront of major breakthroughs into the prevention and treatment of type 1.

We focus on doing three things, and doing them well:

  • We invest in world-class research to find a cure faster and to improve treatments and prevention until that day arrives.
  • We support and connect both people living with the condition and parents of children diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
  • We campaign for better treatments, including providing access to type 1 technology for everyone who wants to use it.

To achieve our ambitious research and advocacy goals, we collaborate with the best minds in the field.

Our most important partner is you

By making a major gift to JDRF you are joining us on our mission for a world without type 1.
