There are many ways you can help reduce the impact of diabetes. All donations, big or small, help us to fund life-changing programs and vital diabetes research.
Give in lieu - A gift that keeps on giving
Make a meaningful difference by asking for a donation in lieu of flowers or a gift for your wedding, birthday, anniversary or special occasion. Asking your friends and loved ones to give a donation in place of a traditional gift by setting up an online fundraising page, is a great way to show your support for a loved one living with diabetes, and raise awareness of the cause.
To set up your gift in lieu online fundraising page simply:
Click here to create your fundraising page or select the start fundraising button below.
Customise your online fundraising page with details of your special occasion.
Share your online fundraising page with your family and friends, asking them to donate to your page.
You can also host your own party or event to raise much needed funds. Contact us today to register your fundraising event with Diabetes Victoria. Call 1300 437 386 or send us an email.
Show your wedding guests your passion for reducing the impact of diabetes and give your day even more meaning, by purchasing Diabetes Victoria wedding favours. Choose from either a simple table place card informing your guests a donation has been made in their honour or a beautiful blue and gold label pin secured to the place card, which is the international symbol for diabetes.
Donation tins - Your small counter space can make a big impact
Placing a donation tin on your shop counter or business reception area, is a simple way your business can raise vital funds to help support people living with, or affected by, diabetes. The hardest part is deciding the best place to put your tin!
