The WA Summer Bushfire Appeal is raising funds to support the East Perth region of Western Australia affected by bushfire.
Now that the fires have been extinguished, the community is beginning the slow process of recovery and rebuilding.
The impact to local communities has been huge with one community nearly wiped out. More than 9,000 hectares within an 80 kilometre perimeter have been affected with:
- more than 9,000 hectares burnt;
- more than 70 houses have been lost;
- animals injured.
The appeal is conducted by the bank’s charitable arm, Community Enterprise Foundation™, and funds raised will be used in a range of locally identified charitable areas to provide relief and recovery in the fire affected areas.
Donations can be made at any Bendigo Bank branch or online at Community Enterprise Foundation.
Please note: for those living outside Australia we accept international donations.
All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and donors will be provided with a tax receipt through the Foundation.
The WA Summer Bushfire Appeal is a management account of Community Enterprise Foundation™ ABN 69 694 230 518, The Bendigo Centre, PO Box 480, Bendigo, Vic 3552. The Foundation will make distributions by way of grants, following receipt of applications from organisations endorsed with an item 1 Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR).
