Vinnies changes lives every day and your support enables this good work. Together we can be there for the 1.8 million Australians experiencing disadvantage that turn to us each year.

One of the most valuable ways to show your support and contribute towards real and positive change is by fundraising for Vinnies.

Why Fundraise?

  • $15 can pay for a day’s meals for a family struggling to put food on the table
  • $30 can provide someone a bed for a night in one of our crisis accommodation services
  • $50 can provide school supplies and excursion fees for a child experiencing disadvantage
  • $80 can pay for a course in life skills such as cooking, preparing for job interviews or basic computer skills at TAFE

The variety of support provided is invaluable and makes a significant difference to the people we assist. See how you can get involved.
