All funds raised via the Vinnies Bushfire Appeal are used to support people and communities impacted by the bushfires. So far, your generous donations have provided:

  • emergency financial assistance
  • essential items such as food and clothing
  • crisis accommodation when homes are destroyed or damaged or when people are evacuated, and
  • emotional support to help get people back on their feet.

As we move from immediate disaster relief into the recovery and rebuilding phase, your donations will be used to help individuals deal with the long-term impact of the fires. Your funds will be used to help communities rebuild, focusing on projects with a community-wide benefit such as restoring community halls and other shared facilities. You will also be helping farms and local businesses get back on their feet.
