Where Your Dollars Go

JDRF funds the most promising research that both improves lives today and brings a cure within reach. Every dollar donated is stewarded with consideration of how to best get us closer to our ultimate goal of a cure. Together, with JDRF’s bold plan for the future of T1D research in Canada, we can create a future without T1D.  

Since its inception in 1970 (1974 in Canada), JDRF has supported nearly every major scientific breakthrough in type one diabetes (T1D) research worldwide. As better treatments unfold and the prospect of curing this disease is on the horizon, we remain committed to directing more resources to launch and sustain innovative research and clinical trials from coast-to-coast.

As the global leader in the fight against T1D, JDRF contributes more than $75M annually to the most innovative T1D research in more than 20 countries. Breakthroughs in JDRF-funded research will change lives for those living with both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes.
