Our Financial Efficiency and Responsibility

At JDRF, we are part of the very community we support. This makes us passionately driven to cure T1D and improve the lives of everyone impacted by this disease. This also makes us personal stewards of every donation made to JDRF and drives us to make each donation bigger by attracting expertise and additional funding from other organizations and partners.

We steward every donation and maximize its impact.

In fiscal year 2021, we drew $425.7M in additional funding and investments for T1D therapy research and development from partners in the private and public sectors. We refer to these funds as “leverage.”

This leverage is a key part of JDRF’s strategy to accelerate cures and life-improving therapies. It has empowered us to grow global support of, and investment in, T1D research, year-over-year — even during the coronavirus pandemic.

JDRF International uses direct appeals to drive a call to action for optimal healthcare for people living with T1D, as well as public policy advocacy. This education and information delivery is inherent in our mission statement—leading the fight against T1D by funding research, advocating for policies that accelerate access to new therapies, and providing a support network for millions of people around the world impacted by T1D.  As a result, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) guideline and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidelines, we allocate a portion of our direct appeal costs to program services.

JDRF’s funding comes from many sources, the vast majority from the millions of people affected by T1D. Any contribution from pharmaceutical companies and device manufacturers is small compared to what we raise directly from the T1D community.
