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 1.3 million people each year.

Vinnies hosts a range of fundraising activities, which include:

  • Vinnies Christmas Appeal - Vinnies continues to rebuild strength in the men and women experiencing disadvantage this Christmas. To make a donation or to find out more click here.

  • 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.

We thank you for your compassionate support. Your generosity enables us to continue providing assistance to the 1 in 18 people experiencing homelessness, disadvantage and social injustice across Australia.
