Bushfire Disaster Appeal

Published 03/01/2020
Do you want to support those affected by bushfires in East Gippsland and Hume? Here's how you can help.

A Bushfire Disaster Appeal has been established in support of community members affected by the recent bushfires in East Gippsland and Hume.

Donations to the Bushfire Disaster Appeal can be made at any Bendigo Bank branch or online via www.communityenterprisefoundation.com.au/make-a-donation/bushfire-disaster-appeal/.

All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and donors will be provided with a tax receipt through the Foundation.

The appeal provides a formal channel for the public to donate money directly to affected communities and is designed to achieve positive outcomes for the community, by working directly with local recovery committees and structures to inform and drive the distribution of funds.

The appeal will be conducted by the Bendigo 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.

All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and donors will be provided with a tax receipt through the Foundation.
