A non-profit organization JDRF- Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation- is the only major Type 1 Diabetes organization focused exclusively on research. As the number one nonprofit, nongovernmental funder of type 1 diabetes research worldwide, JDRF’s mission is constant: to find a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications through the support of research. Since their founding in 1970 by parents of children with juvenile diabetes, JDRF has awarded more than $1.3 billion to type 1 diabetes research. JDRF has announced that more than 85% of their expenditures go directly to research and education about research. They have been instrumental in establishing a focus on the needs of all people with type 1 diabetes, which has helped set the world's juvenile diabetes research agenda to find a cure, and the research world is witnessing significant progress. In fact, after more than 38 years, JDRF can now confidently state that, for the first time ever, a cure for type 1 diabetes is not only possible, but likely.
