Leaving your legacy | Planning a gift to JDRF


You share JDRF’s vision to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D), and so you understand the research necessary to realize this vision is costly and takes time. Investing in JDRF-backed or inspired research through a legacy gift opens more promising avenues in our race to cure T1D and brings key advances that are helping people with T1D lead fuller, safer lives.

Leave a legacy

Legacy gifts help JDRF ensure that current groundbreaking research does not slow down and that we continue to fund a pipeline of promising opportunities that will produce better outcomes for people with T1D until we can prevent this deadly disease and deliver a cure. In the past two decades alone, JDRF has received $100 million from wills, trusts and other planned gifts to support the fight against T1D. Making a planned gift provides important tax and financial benefits, but the real gift you are making is ensuring funding so that together we can provide hope for a future without T1D.

Including a gift to JDRF in your will is a powerful way to ensure JDRF-backed or inspired research continues until we achieve our vision of a world without T1D. Take me to bequest language.

Already have a will? You can amend it with a codicil.
