Fund a Cure

Fund A Cure is JDRF’s auction of giving and the backbone of One Night Gala fundraising. Near the end of the event, guests are invited to raise their bid card at the highest level possible, with every dollar of their donation supporting JDRF’s mission. Donors know their gift, which is 100% tax deductible, is making a direct impact in lives of those living with or affected by T1D.

Since our inception in 1970, JDRF has funded virtually every major breakthrough in T1D science. Today, we are the world’s leading funder and supporter of T1D research. JDRF is the only organization with both the vision and the strategic research plan to end T1D. We are driving progress with an ongoing stream of life-changing therapies moving from the lab to the community, positively impacting millions of lives around the world. We will not rest until T1D is fully conquered.
