Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF) is the worldwide leader in funding research to cure type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly and lasts a lifetime. JDRF is the leading funder and advocate of type 1 diabetes science. JDRF's mission is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. JDRF is also committed to developing new and better treatments that improve the lives of people with type 1 diabetes in the near term and keep them healthy while we advance toward a cure.

Type 1 diabetes is a life threatening autoimmune disease that carries a constant danger to both adults and children making them insulin-dependent for life and creating a persisting threat of devastating complications. It is the reason why devoted individuals and scientist have dedicated their lives to searching for a cure and promoting awareness in the fight against diabetes.

On February 16th, 2011 Delta Epsilon Psi announced its official partnership with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The partnership marked one of the most significant milestone achievements in the history of the fraternity. As partners of a corporate entity, the fraternity’s bounds in supporting its primary philanthropy, type 1 diabetes, have become limitless. The professional status of every signature service event for JDRF has allowed Delta Epsilon Psi to reach out to more individuals on a larger scale, thus resulting in more funds in support of JDRF’s cause.

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Delta Epsilon Psi Fraternity Inc. team up every year to nationally raise money and help promote awareness for the cause. Through the newly formed partnership with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Delta Epsilon Ps has committed to the responsibility of bringing support from not only the South Asian populous, but also from America’ s collegiate community. As students on our respective college campuses, we see a rich atmosphere of progress that can act as a channel from which a small message from one fraternity can become a national outcry by many organizations and college campuses nationally as well as globally.

The brothers of Delta Epsilon Psi are committed to preserving the mission of our predecessors in the fight against juvenile diabetes. Raising over $50,000 annually, Delta Epsilon Psi contributes 100% of its efforts to providing awareness and funds in support of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation mission to find a cure.

Be the Match Foundation

Be the Match Foundation aids in the treatment of many debilitating diseases that numerous people in our world society have. The registry does this by collecting tissue samples to be matched through DNA analysis. It provides people with the unique opportunity to help a patient by donating bone marrow or umbilical cord blood. Thousands of patients with leukemia and other life-threatening diseases depend on the Be The Match Registry to find a match, and it is a fact that seventy percent of individuals have a hard time finding a match in their own families.

As leaders in our respective communities and as devoted philanthropists among college students, Delta Epsilon Psi takes the initiative to help Be the Match Foundation by supporting them in their mission to create awareness and safe lives through registered donors.

Our fraternity is not only committed to continuing awareness for the National Bone Marrow Donor Program, we are also committed to providing potential matches for the national match registry. In the past year, Delta Epsilon Psi registered over 500 individuals to the program with the future aim of increasing the amount annually.

It is our mission to provide an outlet for the registry through our various chapters by hosting numerous events during our philanthropy weeks as well as throughout numerous dates in the semester that not only raise awareness but also register potential donors.

Garam Garba

Garba is a type of dance that focuses around a statue of the Hindu Goddess Durga. This folk dance is usually celebrated during Navratri, which takes place in the fall. However, due to the excitement and overall fun, many youths and families cannot wait until the fall every year. Therefore the Brothers of Delta Epsilon Psi came up with an idea to help quell this desire. The brothers decided to push Garba into the summer. This event itself helps raise thousands of dollars every year towards the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.


The Gentlemen of Delta Epsilon Psi host Drench-a-Delta every year in order to raise awareness and collect donations for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The brothers each take turns standing their ground, while anyone can donate to JDRF and throw water balloons. This fun and exciting event has raised hundreds of dollars every year.

On Going Service

Every year, the gentlemen of Delta Epsilon Psi holds a Be the Match National Marrow Donor Program. They table outside where people can sign up and be placed on the registry to be a marrow donor. If they are matched with a patient, then they can choose to donate or not to donate. The Brothers hand out free ice pops to anyone who signed up to join the registry and help save a life.
