Mission Statement

JDRF's mission is constant: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.

Description

JDRF, the leading charitable funder and advocate of juvenile (type 1) diabetes research worldwide, 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 $600 million in direct funding to diabetes research. In a typical year, more than 80 percent of JDRF's expenditures directly support research and research-related education.
