T1D Financial Donor Priority Survey: Cure Research Remains #1
March 14, 2019
This is the seventh annual survey-based report on the giving priorities of T1D donors.
Three Key Findings:
1) Cure Research Remains the Top Priority.
97% of 2019 survey respondents believe cure research should be the number one priority for all major diabetes charitable organizations. This finding has been consistent and remains unchanged. Trend data by year:
Appendix B: JDRF Uses of Income (Expenses)
2) JDRF Decline in Research Spending is Putting Donations at Risk.
58% of respondents said they would stop giving to JDRF once they found out only 37% of their donation was attributed to research in 2018.
3) Almost All Respondents Want to Give to Practical Cure Research.
91% of respondents in 2019 state that they would donate to Practical Cure research projects if that option was made easily available.
This survey was conducted online in February 2019. All respondents are living in the United States and have T1D or have a family member with the disease. In addition, all respondents are active donors and/or participants in fundraising activities.
