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 Imagine Gala is Central Florida’s elegant black-tie affair benefiting type 1 diabetes. Join local, prominent business leaders and families from the community at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando for an evening of fundraising, celebration and community on November 9, 2019.

    Sponsorship Opportunities

  • Along with generous Fund A Cure donations and our many Sponsors we have reached the success of our past Galas through the procurement of great silent and live auction items!  If you would like to donate an item to our Gala please follow the link below and fill out the attached form and we will be in touch.

Zander and Carmen are our 2019 Imagine Gala Honorees and we are very excited to be able to recognize their efforts. Since their son was diagnosed  they have been deeply involved with our chapter. Zander has joined the Board and in addition  has spearheaded efforts for the Gala as the Board of Ambassador Chair for the last four years. This has allowed us to grow exponentially each year to reaching over $900,000 last year. We will surpass the goal of achieving the Million Dollar mark this year because of people who are committed to JDRF like the Clem’s.
