JDRF’s team fundraising events—including the Walk, Ride, and Galas—are a fun way to get your employees engaged, while supporting your corporate responsibility goals through championing teams, matching employee fundraising or volunteering. Not only will you help advance life-saving treatments, you provide an opportunity to connect your employees to connect with the JDRF mission and with each other.
JDRF offers giving options, causes, volunteer opportunities, strategic partnerships, cause marketing, campaign materials and resources, and more to help you engage your employees and customers while achieving your corporate social responsibility goals.
By championing teams and sponsoring the Walk, Ride and other events, our partners connect their employees with the JDRF mission and with each other.
Double the impact of your donation. Many employers offer matching gift programs and will match the charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses and will give you up to one year after your donation to request a match.
