Ensure the Gala is for a Cure
Galas are terrific fund-raising events. They are fun to attend and raise tens of millions of dollars a year for type 1 diabetes.
Whether or not you plan on attending a gala, we all wish this money will be used to find a cure for T1D. However, in order to make sure that the money is used for T1D cure research, we need to take action.
Today, only a minority of funds raised at galas are actually used to fund research projects. Please see the infographic below.
Ensuring that your gift is used for research is as easy as speaking up. Email JDRF staff and or senior executives. Call the office. Write a note to event organizers. Print this infographic and bring it to your next JDRF event. Join us in helping to restore focus on cure research.
