Planned Giving

Give the gift of a lifetime with a planned gift.

More than 300,000 Canadians live with the countless daily challenges of type 1 diabetes (T1D) and this number continues to grow. Constant monitoring of meals and physical activity, lifelong dependence on insulin, and the threat of devastating complications are issues they deal with every day.

What is a planned gift?

Many people show their long-term commitment to a charity by leaving a planned gift. A planned gift is a charitable donation this is arranged during your lifetime but made available in the future.

A planned gift allows you to leave a substantial legacy for T1D research, while providing significant tax benefits to you or your estate.

As the leading global organization funding T1D research, JDRF is supporting the best and most promising T1D studies and researchers in Canada and internationally.

We want to make research innovations happen sooner and we need your help to do so. By making a planned gift to JDRF, you can leave a legacy to help us fulfill this promise, and help us turn type one into type none.

Your generosity and investment in our work will support JDRF’s research goals – to cure, better treat, and prevent T1D – bringing us one step closer to turning type one into type none. It’s a wonderful and meaningful way to express your values and leave your mark on the world to benefit future generations of Canadians affected by T1D.
