JDRF’s corporate partners are vital to the success of our mission to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
JDRF appreciates the partnerships that enable us to fund groundbreaking diabetes research worldwide. Since our founding in 1970 (1974 in Canada), JDRF has awarded more than $1.6 billion to diabetes research, including $116 million in 2011 alone. More than 80 per cent of JDRF's expenditures directly support research and research-related education. Every day, JDRF’s generous partners and their dedicated employees are making a positive difference in the lives of those with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Partner support continues to help JDRF in its commitment to developing new and better treatments that improve the lives of people with T1D in the near term, and keep them healthy while we advance toward a cure.
