Planned Giving

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) International is deeply grateful to the generous individuals who have included a bequest to JDRF in their wills. Gifts by wills, an important source of support for JDRF, enable people to make significant contributions that they may not have been able to make during their lifetimes.

Bequests to JDRF can take various forms. Making a provision in your will for JDRF is a simple process. A charitable bequest can be included in your will at its creation or added later by means of a codicil. In either case you will need to consult an attorney.

Several types of bequests can be made:

  • Outright bequests (can be pecuniary, specific, or residuary).
  • Bequests in trusts.

Bequests can be any amount and you are not required to disclose this amount to JDRF. Designating JDRF as your beneficiary allows you to become a member of our Beta Society. Beta Society members receive an exclusive lapel pin and acknowledgement in JDRF publications (unless anonymity is requested). 

CONGRATULATIONS to the Southwest Ohio Chapter for winning the “Outstanding Achievement in Planned Giving” award in 2012. This was achieved by being the top Beta Society chapter in the country during the membership drive.

For more information about charitable bequests, please call 1-888-406-JDRF(5373).

Major Gifts

Email Melissa Newman or contact her at 513-793-3223.

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of appreciated stock or mutual funds are another great way to give to JDRF. You get an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of securities you have owned more than one year, subject to the usual limitation, and capital gains tax will be completely avoided on these assets. To transfer securities to JDRF, please contact the SWO office at 1-888-406-JDRF(5373).

Matching Gifts

Increase the power of your gift!

A great way to double your gift is through company matching. Many corporations and foundations will match, double or even triple your personal donation! Some companies will even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

To see if your company has a matching gift program, visit www.matchinggift.com/jdrf and type in your company name. If your company does have a matching gift program, this site will provide you with details on the companies matching gift policy and procedure.

Or take a look at our list of companies that have matched JDRF donations in the last three years by clicking here.

How Do I Apply For a Matching Gift?

  • Obtain a matching gift form and program guidelines from your human resources office.
  • Fill in the employee section of the form and send it to the SWO JDRF office along with your donation. If you’ve made your contribution online, simply complete the form and mail it to our office.

We will complete the form and forward it to your employer’s matching gifts office for processing. The company will send its matching donation directly to JDRF.
