The Gate Foundation
JDRF is pleased to honor The GATE Foundation with this year's Living and Giving Award. The GATE Foundation is the philanthropic entity of GATE Petroleum Company. The mission of the GATE Foundation is to support the efforts and services that nurture and protect the well being of "Family and Community." Earlier this year, The GATE Foundation raised $72,000 via the sale of JDRF paper sneakers in all 77 GATE convenience stores during the month of March. Since the GATE Foundation began its support of JDRF they've cumulatively generated nearly $171,000 to help advance research, improve treatment options, and impact local outreach programs for individuals and families affected with type 1 diabetes (T1D).
