Disaster appeals

Choose where your donation goes

Your donation will make a difference in flood and fire affected communities across Australia. You can donate to a natural disaster appeal today.

Thanks to your generous donations, funds will assist in providing relief and medium to long term community recovery.

We recognise that community recovery is a marathon, not a sprint. The process begins with the affected communities to determine how best to use the funds. Decisions are best informed by locals for the good of their communities. Their needs evolve and change as the recovery process proceeds through time and we help where we can.
