Gifts in Wills

Your legacy, their future: help create a world without type 1 diabetes.

Gifts in

You may be reading this page because you want to leave a legacy of changing the future for type 1 diabetes (T1D). Someone close to you may live with T1D, or perhaps you have been diagnosed with the condition yourself.

You may be here because you believe in the power of scientific breakthroughs, as well as JDRF Australia’s investment in research to find cures and improve lives. Or you may be here because you are committed to JDRF Australia’s vision of a world without T1D, and you want to help make that a reality as quickly as possible.

No matter your reason, we hope you’ll consider supporting JDRF Australia with a gift in your Will (also known as a bequest), to ensure we can continue driving T1D research progress forward.

By doing so, your belief in a better future for T1D in Australia will live on.

Your generosity will have a lasting impact on all members of the T1D community, leaving an exceptional legacy of improving the lives of many families throughout Australia and around the world for future generations.

My son Dan was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) when he was 12 years old. He is now 31 – living life fully, with his young family – thanks to modern technology. JDRF has been pivotal in ensuring all people living with T1D have access to tech, and that age or bank balance is not a barrier.

Our family understands the role that JDRF plays in the community, across advocacy, and, most importantly, in medical research. That is why I have chosen to leave a gift in my will to JDRF.

As a parent of a child with T1D, and an active volunteer for the last two decades, I know that JDRF is well governed and fiscally responsible; as such, my ongoing and legacy gift to the organisation will be well used and leveraged to the full capability to impact all those living with T1D.”

-Mark K., father to Dan, who lives with type 1 diabetes


About your Will

Including a charitable gift in your Will won’t impact your wealth during your lifetime, but it will have a meaningful impact on the world after you’ve gone.

Writing a will is also an act of love for those around you. It can reduce emotional and financial stress on your loved ones, and let them clearly know your wishes.

JDRF has partnered with Gathered Here to assist you in writing your will, free of charge.

Download our booklet to learn how – in just 10 minutes – you can easily write your Will, allowing you to make important preparations for your family. It’s also simple to pledge a meaningful gift to a cause you care about, like JDRF Australia.
