Committed to Cure Diabetes
Throughout our history, the support of the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation has been the driving force behind the Diabetes Research Institute’s progress and we continue to serve as the main funding source.
Founded in 1971 by a group of parents of children with diabetes who were committed to finding a cure for this devastating disease, our Foundation has evolved into an international coalition of families, patients, business leaders, celebrities, scientists, clinicians and other concerned individuals who have elevated the importance of cure-focused research and shifted the direction of funding into this critical area.
While there are many worthy diabetes organizations, we are unique among diabetes causes because we have chosen to concentrate solely on the cure and to dedicating our resources – both financial and human – to this very goal.
This narrow focus has attracted the attention of people who seek a clear mission, donor accountability and financial transparency when giving to a diabetes organization.
The DRI has become the world leader it is today through the dedicated efforts and unparalleled perseverance of the people involved with our Foundation – those who have a personal stake in our mission to put an end to diabetes.
Supported by private donations, the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation has been and continues to be the organization of choice for those who are serious, passionate and committed to finding a cure for their loved ones and millions of others with diabetes.
