Gifts in Honour

Honour the memory of a loved one with a donation in lieu of flowers or celebrate a special life milestone  by making a donation in lieu of giving gifts.

Giving a donation In Memoriam is a wonderful way to pay tribute to a loved family member, friend, neighbour or colleague.  Families can take comfort in the knowledge that their loved one is being remembered for a life well lived, while contributing to Diabetes NSW & ACT so that others will live a better life.

An In Celebration donation to Diabetes NSW & ACT is a way to honour friends and family on their special day by contributing to a cause that will help make a difference to many lives.

How to arrange a Gift in Honour

By offering family and friends the opportunity to make a donation to Diabetes NSW & ACT in lieu of flowers at a funeral or in lieu of gifts at a celebration, you’ll help to fund vital research into better treatments and a cure, and to support people to live well with diabetes.
