Vinnies confirms every cent will go to bushfire victims

  • Every dollar raised will be used to support the people impacted by the fires. 
  • No administration fees are taken from this appeal, meaning the money raised goes directly to the relief and recovery effort. 
  • Vinnies will not, and has never, kept funds from disaster appeals for any other work or cause.
  • We have disbursed significant amounts of material goods including food, water, clothing and bedding.
  • We rely on generous donations from Victorians to support our good works.
  • We receive no government bushfire funding here in Victoria.

On Thursday 23 January a national media statement was released restating our position. You can read it here.
