Jack Kuhn, former South Gulf Coast board member, has become the newest member of the BETA Society for our chapter.
Many donors discover the ultimate way to support JDRF research is by including a gift in their will, trust or retirement account. Donors who make this important commitment to JDRF are invited to become a JDRF BETA Society member, a group of supporters who have made a lasting commitment to T1D research by naming JDRF in their estate plans.
JDRF has received more than $100 million from contributions so generously included in the estate plans of thousands of supporters. Without this generosity, significant research instrumental to tremendous progress toward better treatments and a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D) would not have been funded. Today, there are more than 2,300 BETA Society members. But with so much to be done to find new treatments and a cure for T1D, we need to keep moving forward!
