Ways to Give

Fund a Cure

Immediately following the Live Auction, JDRF offers individuals and companies the opportunity to contribute directly to T1D research during our Fund A Cure auction. Guests will be invited to raise their bid cards at various donation levels, making a 100% tax-deductible contribution that directly funds JDRF research. You can participate in Fund A Cure whether or not you are able to attend the event.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsor information for the 2016 Hope Ball will be available soon. Event sponsors enjoy benefits such as premier seating, champagne toasts, and recognition at the event and beyond. A sponsorship is extraordinarily effective. More than 80 percent of JDRF’s expenditures go directly to education and research to prevent, treat and cure type 1 diabetes.
