Make a 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

Information for Individuals, Solicitors and Executors can be found below.

For more information on making a bequest or just to have a chat please contact us, you might be surprised to hear what a small percentage of your estate can achieve.


If you intend to leave a gift to the Life for a Child Program 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.


If your client chooses to leave a bequest to Life for a Child you can use our suggested Will wording, below. For more information please contact us.

“I give, free of all duties and taxes *____ to the Life for a Child Program**. An authorised receipt from Life for a Child will be a sufficient discharge for the executor(s) or trustee.”

*insert either:

“The whole (or …%) of the residue of my estate”.

“The whole (or … %) of my estate”.
