Ways to Give

Fund A Cure

Fund A Cure is an opportunity to make an impact on the lives of people living with T1D and their loved ones through a 100% tax-deductible donation, which will accelerate life-changing research. Fund A Cure donations will be invested in JDRF’s effective and focused research agenda aimed to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until there is a cure.

  • The JDRF Kansas City Dream Gala is an event known for its elegance and its power to connect more than 800 members of our region’s leading business, civic and cultural leaders. The JDRF Dream Gala has been recognized as the #1 Nationally Sponsored Event in Kansas City by The Independent magazine more than ten years in a row!

  • In the 24 years since JDRF Kansas City Chapter’s Dream Gala began, more than $20 million has been donated for research aimed to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D). It’s because of generous donors like you that today there are better treatments to help those with this disease live healthier and longer. But our work is not done – we still need a cure.

    At the virtual Dream Gala May 29, 2020, there will be a moment after the Live Auction when the room is stilled, the story of hope unfolds and Fund A Cure begins. Whether or not you are able to join us on May 29, you can participate in Fund A Cure. A donation to Fund A Cure is a direct donation to fund diabetes research. One hundred percent of your donation is tax-deductible.
