Volunteer Fire Brigades Vic Inc.

Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria Welfare Fund

Authorised to fundraise on behalf of the NSW Rural Fire Service Association and Volunteer Fire Brigades Vic Inc.

Donate to help support the fire fighters who are fighting to stop the fires in Australia, by clicking “GiveNow” under the charity you would like to support.

The fires in Australia have been burning since September 2019. As at 6 January 2020 they have claimed 23 lives, destroyed at least 1,506 homes and ravaged across 6 million hectares. It’s scary and it’s heartbreaking.

Volunteer fire fighters are not paid, and many are taking unpaid leave to fight these fires. We need to act now to support these services to limit the death and overwhelming destruction caused by these fires.

Please donate to either of the following charities. Donations are made directly to the charities via this platform. The platform charges a fee of 2.4% and a credit card fee of $0.30, but there are no other costs involved. You will receive a receipt.

NSW Rural Fire Services Association 

The NSW RFSA is the representative association of the volunteers and staff of the NSW Rural Fire Service. The money raised will help to support these fire fighters on the ground through the provision of food, care packages and clean shirts and hygiene products (for when the firefighters are finishing a shift in the field, particularly when they are away from home).

There are an estimated 2,500 fire fighters on the ground every day in New South Wales alone.

Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria Inc.

The VFBV advocates on behalf of the Country Fire Authority in Victoria. They have established the Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria Welfare Fund to assist in ensuring the ongoing health and welfare of their volunteer members and their families experiencing significant financial hardship.

VBFB covers the operating costs so that 100% of the money the Fund receives is used entirely to help CFA volunteers in need.

How else can you help?

We also encourage you to donate to the other fire services across Australia to help provide resources to work towards stopping these fires. The associations include the below (links will take you directly to the donate page for each service).

Western Australia: Bushfire Volunteers
