Charitable fundraising

Bushfire fundraising

The community is doing an extraordinary job fundraising for victims of the bushfire emergency.

With large amounts of money being raised, it’s vital there are appropriate protections in place.

Donate to licensed charities

When making donations, we recommend you stick with well-known and trusted charities. Being licensed means the charity’s fundraising has to be audited and reported to either state or federal regulators to ensure the money is being used appropriately.

Getting authority to carry out fundraising

Organisers need to obtain 'authority' to carry out fundraising in NSW when the money collected is greater than $15,000.

We want to make it as quick and easy as possible to get authority. So we've set up the Charitable Fundraising Bushfire Appeals Hotline.

Call the hotline with any questions you might have about setting up fundraising.
