WHY I SUPPORT THE DRI
People from all walks of life actively support the cure-focused research at the DRI. But they all share one important belief: the DRI is the best hope for a cure…and tomorrow is not soon enough to cure all people with diabetes.
Ron Darling is an Emmy-winning sports analyst and a member of the DRI Foundation’s National Board of Directors. He will stop at nothing until a cure is found for his eldest son, Jordan, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 11.
Support research for a cure!

Each year, many companies support nonprofits by distributing hundreds of millions of dollars in matching gift donations. Companies that offer matching gift programs reward employees who make charitable contributions by increasing the impact of their gifts.
How Does This Work?
After making your donation to the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation, you can complete a matching gift form and submit it to your company’s HR department. Your company will make a contribution to match your gift. Some companies may even double or triple the size of your gift!
