JDRF is a proud partner of Give Where You Live Collier, our region’s awesome 24-hour online giving challenge. This exciting event is organized by the Community Foundation of Collier County and is set to launch at noon on February 20, 2019. So, mark your calendars now, because we will need you to rally friends and family for JDRF and help us raise funds during this 24 hours of local giving!
We are asking our fans and supporters to give whatever they can, because every gift will be multiplied through a matching fund. The more money you help JDRF raise, the larger percentage of the $500,000 matching fund we will receive to help support Type 1 Diabetes research. So join us for this inspiring, community-wide event. Together, we’ll show off Collier County’s spirit of giving, raise awareness about JDRF and celebrate the collective effort it takes to make this region great. You can learn more and sign up today at GiveWhereYouLiveCollier.org.
All funds raised through this special event will be directed toward research.
