Donate to Australian Bushfire Funds

So far the 2019 / 2020 Australian bush fires have destroyed millions hectares, killing millions of animals and damaging over 1,500 homes.

Needs of the victims can vary greatly and many of the States and charitable groups of Australians have issued pleas for financial aid, rather than donations of food and other goods.

Some organisations accepting donations are;

National Appeals

Red Cross’ Disaster Relief and Recovery fund

Salvation Army disaster appeal

The St Vincent de Paul Bushfire appeal

State fire services

Donations can be made to the state-funded rural fire services. Some states allow pledges to individual brigades.

Victoria: CFA Donate

NSW: NSW RFS donate

South Australia: CFS donate

Queensland: RFBAQ donate

Wildlife and Animal Welfare

NSW RSPCA Bushfire appeal

VIC RSPCA bushfire appeal

WWF Bushfire emergency appeal


We encourage everyone who would like to donate to consider the page or website before entering any financial information.
