Vinnies changes lives every day and your support enables this good work. Together we can be there for the 1.8 million Australians facing hardship that turn to Vinnies 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?

A donation of just $50 can provide school supplies and excursion fees for a child experiencing disadvantage so they do not have to miss out on essential learning.

Through fundraising and donor generosity we can ensure men, women and children are given a second chance at life and are provided with the right support when times are tough. It is only through the kindness of our generous donors that we are able to continue our good works across QLD to over 287,000 people each year.

  • $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
  • $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. Click on one of the tabs below to see how you can get involved.

Host a Vinnies Community Sleepout

The Vinnies Community Sleepout aims to raise awareness of homelessness and also give community groups and individuals an opportunity to crucial funds for Vinnies’ homeless services. There are more than 100,000 Australians who experience homelessness each night. Just under half of these are women; a quarter of these are under the age of 18.

Vinnies Community Sleepouts provide groups with a real way to make a difference. They offer an opportunity for people to get involved and learn what life is like for those living on the streets. All funds raised by the Vinnies Community Sleepouts will go towards supporting Vinnies homeless services.
