POSITION YOUR COMPANY WITH THE JDRF GALA
The JDRF Gala is one of the nation’s premier charity events, providing a valuable return on your business investment through endless networking and marketing opportunities. Joining corporate leaders, your company will be seen as a leader in your community, making a significant and direct impact in the lives of those living with type 1 diabetes (T1D). The JDRF Gala offers exciting live and silent auctions, and JDRF’s signature Fund A Cure, where 100% of your donations go to the vital mission of JDRF.
GET INVOLVED WITH JDRF IN A MEANINGFUL WAY
Companies support JDRF because we have a solid track record of funding research efficiently and effectively. Approximately 80% of what we raise goes directly to research and research-related education, which is among the highest percentages for charities nationwide. People with T1D miss, on average, 5.5 more work days per year than those without diabetes. Also, T1D-associated healthcare costs in the U.S. account for $14 billion dollars annually. Your company can help JDRF reduce that number.
INVEST IN THE FUTURE
JDRF-funded research encompasses T1D at every life stage: stopping its progression in people who are newly diagnosed; reversing it in those who have lived with the disease for years; avoiding or reversing complications; and preventing the disease in people at risk. The time is now to work together, so we can deliver better treatments to ease the daily burden of the disease until there is a cure. We cannot do it alone.

We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
