Mission Statement

To find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.

Description

JDRF, the world's leading nonprofit, nongovernmental funder of diabetes research, was founded in 1970 by the parents of children with juvenile diabetes--a disease which strikes children suddenly, makes them insulin dependent for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications. Since inception, JDRF has provided more than $500 million to diabetes research worldwide. We are proud to say that 87 cents of every dollar goes directly to research and education about research. Our mission is constant: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
