The Diabetes Victoria Foundation is a dedicated endowment fund which recognises and commemorates, in perpetuity, the generosity and legacy of Diabetes Victoria’s many members, donors and bequestors since the organisation’s inception in 1953.
The Foundation provides a permanent and growing source of funding to ensure the work of Diabetes Victoria can continue, by providing support and education to Victorians affected by diabetes as well as funding cutting-edge diabetes research.



Contributions to the Foundation can be made through:
  • Donations to via Australian Communities Foundation 
  • Major gifts requesting the funds be dedicated to the Foundation
  • Gifts in Wills by donors, trusts and estates requesting the funds be dedicated to the Foundation
  • Gifts providing a tribute in honour of a community member who has passed away.  


Income from the Foundation will be approved and distributed annually by the Diabetes Victoria Board and communicated to all members through our news and information channels.
Contributors will be recognised in the Diabetes Victoria Annual Review and will be provided with an annual update on the impact of the fund and its growth.


The Diabetes Victoria Foundation is managed and overseen as a dedicated foundation within the Australian Communities Foundation and will be separately accounted for in Diabetes Victoria’s financial statements.
