Community Partners

JDRF Community Partners include corporations, foundations, organizations and individuals, all of whom play a key role in research and outreach within JDRF’s mission to find a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications through the support of research. In addition, these partnerships provide our partners, their employees, vendors, and consumers the opportunity to get involved and make a difference in the lives of those living with type 1 diabetes and their families.

We welcome the opportunity to develop new partnerships. Our cause marketing team evaluates partnership opportunities with companies that have a solid history and strong brand development. Additionally, your involvement creates positive community visibility, demonstrates a market presence, and is an occasion to network with clients and employees. Our goal at JDRF is to give people several ways to become involved – sponsorship, team building and volunteerism to name a few.

Type 1 diabetes accounts for $14.9 billion dollars a year in US health care costs. In the next twenty years, these costs are expected to double. It is likely that 1 out of every 3 employees is impacted by diabetes, either personally or through a relative. In order to reduce these figures we need to continue building and expanding partnerships with companies who have the resources to make a difference.

We have a variety of sponsorship opportunities and benefits available. Some of our opportunities include Event Sponsorship for Walk to Cure Diabetes and Promise Ball.Details of these are available in the Event Menu details. Other partners like to hold events known as “third party events”.
