Asked about why Neil Kulkarni of St Louis
believes JDRF is the best charity to support, he replied, "Given the long history of the JDRF and the fact that eighty percent of the funds they collect go directly to research, you know you're getting real benefits for the money and time you put into supporting them. There aren't that many charities out there in the world that are this efficient with their funds."
JDRF is now sponsoring over $530 million in research spread out through seventeen different countries. The research explores every possible avenue for curing Type I diabetes. JDRF's funds are vital and needed in the field of Type I diabetes research. More specifically, JDRF has made a variety of breakthrough advances in diabetes research over the years.
