Corporate sponsorships

Diabetes NSW relies heavily on corporate sponsorship, donations and in-kind support to provide vital services for people living with and at risk of diabetes.

In Australia, approximately 4.1 million Australians have diabetes or pre-diabetes and the prevalence of diabetes continues to rise at an alarming rate. Your generous donations and support enable us to carry out critical diabetes prevention and management programs, support research into diabetes and its complications and offer support to all those impacted by this chronic disease.

Whether you are looking to make a single or regular donation, support our various resources and publications or to sponsor one of our major events or projects, we would love to work with you. Perhaps you might consider assisting us in providing other in-kind support like facilities, venues and equipment or offering benefits to our growing membership base.

Our current sponsorship programs demonstrate that corporations benefit from exposure to a diverse target audience and sustained links with Diabetes NSW. We offer unique, tailor-made, targeted sponsorship opportunities that offer a strong return on investment.

Diabetes NSW works with you to gain publicity from sponsorship, donations, gifts and in-kind support. You may also be able to deduce tax benefits by offering financial support.

If you would like further information on Corporate Sponsorships, Donations or In-Kind support please enquire here. Alternatively please contact a member of the corporate partnership team on 1300 342 238 to discuss opportunities.

There are various opportunities to show your support
