Diabetes news this morning carried reports that the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International is under investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney . According to the report, hundreds of thousands of dollars could be missing.
The missing money was turned up in an internal audit of the charity, which has already caused the dismissal of two foundation employees. Although details of the investigation are unclear at this stage, it appears that funds could have been misappropriated within the charity using false receipts.
The foundation has made it clear that the finding doesn’t highlight a lack of fiscal control, rather pointing out that the charity does detect problems of this nature, and deals with them quickly and efficiently.
The JDRF contributes millions every year to funding research that helps diabetics throughout the world.
