About Us

JDRFJDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Driven by passionate, grassroots volunteers connected to children, adolescents, and adults with this disease, JDRF is now the largest charitable supporter of T1D research. The goal of JDRF research is to improve the lives of all people affected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D.

Since its founding in 1970, JDRF has awarded more than $1.6 billion to diabetes research. Past JDRF efforts have helped to significantly advance the care of people with this disease, and have expanded the critical scientific understanding of T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. More than 80 percent of JDRF's expenditures directly support research and research-related education.

JDRF was created—and is still led—by people with a personal connection to type 1 diabetes. Today, volunteers at JDRF’s more than 100 locations worldwide remain the driving force behind our activities. That gives us an unrelenting passion and commitment to find a cure—and, in the near term, better treatments—for people with T1D.
