This bushfire event is far from over and we are committed to supporting Victorian communities impacted by fire.
The Victorian Government has partnered with Bendigo Bank and The Salvation Army to establish an appeal, with 100% of donated funds going directly to communities in need.
An Advisory Panel, chaired by former Victorian Deputy Premier Pat McNamara, will consider and recommend where the funds are distributed.
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.
The appeal will be conducted by the bank’s charitable arm, Community Enterprise Foundation™.
All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and donors will be provided with a tax receipt through the Foundation.
The National Bushfire Disaster Appeal and state-based Bushfire Disaster Appeals are management accounts 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).
