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 provided with the right support and a hand up when times are tough. It is only through the kindness of our generous donors that we are able to continue our good works to over 50,000 people each year across SA.

  • $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. Ways that you can get involved include:

Community fundraising events

Charity Dinners, Fun Runs, Cake Stalls, Morning Teas, Trivia Nights and BBQs are among the many activities to choose from when considering to fundraise for Vinnies. However don’t let these ideas limit your creativity sometimes the biggest fundraisers come from the most unique ideas.
