Bequest

We believe that no child should die of diabetes and a gift in your Will would help us work towards this.

Bequests allow us to provide more support, creating a new future for more children living with type 1 diabetes in less-resourced countries.

Leaving a gift can take a number of forms:

  • the residue of the estate
  • a percentage of the estate
  • a specific amount of money
  • a life insurance or superannuation policy
  • assets such as shares, property, works of art, jewellery
  • an investment in perpetuity

Individuals

If you intend to leave a gift to the International Diabetes Federation Life for a Child Programme in your Will, or if you have already included us, we would really like to know so we can thank you personally. Informing us allows us to better plan for the future. Please be assured all information will be held in strict confidence and if you prefer to remain anonymous, we will respect your privacy.
