Donations & Sponsors-How to get them


YOUR DONATION is Saving the lives of Type ONE Diabetes
The DANII Foundation principal aims are to raise awareness of potentially life threatening Hypoglycaemic and Hyperglycaemia; to lobby governments to make affordable life-saving technology such as Continuous Glucose Monitoring with remote alert systems that provide support, security and peace of mind for the management of all who live with type ONE diabetes and the Insulin dependent. The Foundation believes this technology should be readily available and affordable to every single person living with T1D.  DANII provides financial assistance and 14-Day free trials in life-saving diabetes management technology.

The DANII Foundation aspires to create awareness and strengthen community knowledge about “What is type ONE Diabetes”, and to share the seriousness of type ONE diabetes and its impact on the lives of those affected, including family and friends. DANII supports the Diabetes Community through advocacy, education and financial support. DANII is the voice of all affected by diabetes.

We accept donations by credit card, cheque, or money order or direct deposit. To make a donation online select from the options on our website or download the Donation Form.

Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for individuals to make regular donations to the DANII Foundation through automated payroll deductions.

Donating $20 each pay period through workplace giving will cost you only $13.70 and the DANII Foundation will receive the full $20.**Based on a marginal tax rate of 32.5%.

Workplace giving allows you as an employee to make a regular donation off your gross pay. Your employer sends your donation to us in one lump sum along with other employees’ donations. You can easily claim a deduction for donations in your annual tax return off the information provided by your employer on your employee payment summary. It’s a quick and easy way for you to support the DANII Foundation, and because we receive your donation in a lump sum and don’t need to send you an individual tax receipt, it’s also quick and easy for us to process.

To enrol in workplace giving contact your payroll or human resources manager to find out about your company’s program or for more information please contact

The DANII Foundation is proud to be supported through workplace giving programs at companies and organisations large and small, throughout Australia.

Establishing a workplace giving program engages your employees and demonstrates your commitment to corporate social responsibility. A program is easy to set-up and is a simple, efficient way to support your employees’ desire to give back to their community. In addition, implementing a matched giving program – whereby the company matches all or a percentage of employees’ contributions – is a powerful incentive, bringing employees together and boosting morale as well as substantially increasing your combined support.

To learn more about the DANII Foundation workplace giving program, or for information on establishing your company’s program, please contact the Donation team anytime on +61 (0) 455 905 904 or email

Important information about workplace giving can be found on the ATO website (including their Guide to Workplace Giving).


Leaving a legacy in your Will is a powerful way to support the DANII Foundation.

If you would like to make a bequest, we recommend you seek advice from your solicitor when making or updating your Will.

Sample wording to include a bequest in your Will:

I GIVE $________ to the DANII Foundation of 1/6 Moore Avenue, Lindfield; New South Wales. PROVIDED THAT if that organisation cannot receive a gift, then that gift shall be made to the charitable organisation in the relevant jurisdiction that my executor considers most closely reflects the objectives of the originally nominated organisation.
