About Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Canada:
Founded in 1974 by parents of children with diabetes, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Canada (JDRF) works to raise money to fund research to find a cure for diabetes, focusing on type 1 diabetes and its complications. JDRF reports that 300,000 Canadians live with type 1 diabetes. A diabetic who uses insulin with a needle will require approximately 1,460 needles a year to manage the disease. Type 1 diabetes often leads to life-threatening and debilitating complications which may include kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, stroke, nerve damage and amputation. JDRF has 14 chapters across Canada that provide research updates and information to people living with diabetes.
JDRF is one of six international affiliates of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International, the world's largest charitable funder of diabetes science. In F2008, JDRF granted $9.8m to 47 Canadian doctors focused on type 1 diabetes research, including its contribution to international research. Research funding is diversified over 4 areas – immune therapies, beta cell therapies, glucose control, and complication therapies. JDRF highlights the increase in human clinical trials which indicate taking research from the lab to practical application, from 5 trials in 2003 to 50 trials in 2011.
JDRF's administrative costs are 5% of revenues and fundraising costs are 32% of donations. JDRF has funding reserves of $7.3m (including $85,500 in donor- endowed funds) that cover 54% of annual program costs.
