Year-End Gifts Provide Vital Support


From funding innovative research to advocating for government action to providing a support structure for our community, no other organization does more to fight type 1 diabetes (T1D) than JDRF.

People with T1D are living longer, healthier lives with fewer complications. New technologies are improving outcomes and easing the 24/7/365 burden of the disease. Groundbreaking science is bringing us closer to cures than ever before. All these advances happened because of you—our T1D champions.

If you are planning on making charitable contributions prior to the end of 2022, we would greatly appreciate your consideration to include JDRF in your year-end giving in any of the following ways:

Ways to Give

General Donation
Support JDRF by mailing a check to the JDRF Greater New England Chapter at 62 Walnut Street, Suite 5, Wellesley, MA 02481, or make an online donation by visiting:

Tribute Donation
Honor a family member or friend living with T1D by donating to help bring life-changing therapies to those who need them most.

Memorial Donation
Celebrate the life of a loved one by honoring his or her memory with a donation to fund research that will lead to a cure.

Stocks, Bonds, and Mutual Fund Donation
Gift appreciated securities to help us fund T1D research—and receive financial benefits.

Real Estate
Gifts of appreciated real estate are like gifts of appreciated securities. Assuming you have owned the property for more than one year, you may deduct the fair market value as a charitable contribution while bypassing all capital gains taxes.

Charitable IRA Rollover
If you’re 70½ or older, you can contribute up to $100,000 annually from your IRA without generating taxable income. This is an ideal way of making a tax-wise gift while satisfying your required minimum distribution (RMD). Charitable IRA Rollovers are simple to make and are a tax-wise giving strategy. A call to your plan administrator is all that is required to get started.

Workplace Giving
Take part in the Combined Federal Campaign, employee matches or fundraising drives to close in on a cure.

Donor Advised Fund
Giving through a donor advised fund (DAF) has become the fastest growing source of charitable gifts over the last two decades. You receive an immediate charitable tax deduction for each contribution you make to your DAF, provided you itemize your deductions. You can then contribute to JDRF and other charities at any time you choose, from one single account, simplifying your giving.

2022 is quickly coming to a close. Please consider your long-term charitable goals. Including JDRF in your estate plan is an important way to ensure research continues until we realize our vision of a world without T1D.

We appreciate your consideration and thank you for your support.
