Delta Tau Delta’s philanthropic partnership is with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The JDRF team is the largest charitable supporter of type 1 diabetes (T1D). The goal of JDRF research is to improve the quality of life for all those affected by T1D, and progressing to find a cure. The donations of time and funds from Delta Tau Delta bring JDRF closer to a world without T1D. College campuses have planned events such as volleyball tournaments, home-run derby, singing competitions, and rock concerts to help raise funds for JDRF. Delta Tau Delta has raised around $104,000 for JDRF research since the start of our partnership. In the fall of 2015, our chapter raised over $6,000 for JDRF.
