Juvenile Diabetes Research FoundationJuvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is the world’s leading nonprofit, nongovernmental funder of diabetes research. JDRF structures its research on a business-world model to ensure that resources are spent most effectively to accelerate progress toward finding a cure. They are the only major diabetes organization focused exclusively on research.
In FY2001, JDRF allocated 87 cents of every dollar directly to research and education about research. Only 7 cents of every dollar went to fundraising and 6 cents to administration costs. For the fourth year in a row, the American Institute of Philanthropy has given JDRF an “A” rating, the only such rating for any national diabetes organization.
JDRF has been named one of “America’s 100 Best Charities” by Worth magazine. They received high marks from other prominent independent sources on charitable giving, including Forbes magazine, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, and The Wall Street Journal’s Smart Money magazine.
