Join an existing activity or create your own to show your support, raise funds, and promote awareness to make a difference in the lives of people living with diabetes.


Fun dress-up days at work, high teas, trivia nights, fashion parades, bike rides or strolls around the block are a few of the ways people across Queensland have raised donations to provide essential services to people with all types of diabetes.


Our fundraising kit includes ideas for fundraisers, how to get started, and much more. 


If you are thinking about fundraising, it is easy to get started and the team here at Diabetes Queensland are here to help you make your event a success.


One of the things we offer our fundraisers is the ability to create your own personal fundraising webpage. Share your event, collect donations online and issue receipts automatically. We also welcome gifts of cheques, cash and sponsorship.
