With over two million people living below the poverty line in Australia, including over half a million children, your donation allows the St Vincent de Paul Society to provide more than immediate help, it provides something much more valuable – the opportunity of a better life. Regular financial donations play a crucial role in our ability to help 1.8 million people each year.
Vinnies also hosts a range of community fundraising activities, which include:
- Vinnies CEO Sleepout - As our headline event the Vinnies CEO Sleepout aims to get some of Australia’s highest profile business people involved in raising funds for Vinnies and raising awareness about homelessness.
- Vinnies Community Sleepouts - You don’t have to be in business to hold a sleepout – anyone can hold a Community Sleepout. Funds raised through the Sleepout directly assist people experiencing homelessness and fund new projects.
- Vinnies School Sleepouts - They’re ideally suited for schools seeking ways to raise social justice issues among students.
As well the Community Sleepouts, our regular appeals – the Winter Appeal and the Christmas Appeal – helps us help others when they need it the most. Here is a link to our most recent Appeal:
