Give a gift in memory

Giving a gift in memory is a special way to honour the life of a loved one when they pass away. By offering family and friends the opportunity to make a donation to Diabetes NSW & ACT in lieu of flowers, you help us support people to live a life without the complications of diabetes, manage the effects of diabetes and contribute to vital research.

How to organise donations in memory of your loved ones

Donation envelopes

Funeral Directors and individuals can contact our fundraising team to request special donation envelopes to be sent direct to you for family and friends at the funeral. These can be easily returned using the included Reply Paid envelope.

Phone or online donation

To make an ‘in memory’ donation over the phone, call 1300 342 238 , or click here to donate online and remember to include the name of your loved one. A letter and receipt is sent to each person, following their kind and generous ‘in memory’ donation.

In lieu of flowers

A letter to acknowledge your gift in lieu of flowers can also be sent to the family, along with the names of the people who made a donation.

If you would like further information about ‘in memory’ donations, please contact Fundraising on 1300 342 238 or email:
