Impact numbers from the 2022/2023 financial year.

"My sincere appreciation to the dedicated volunteers in the evacuation centre and recovery hub, including Jodi, Heather, and Ann. Jodi's initiative in organising showers for myself, my mother, and my young nephew was a tremendous relief after enduring nearly nine days without proper hygiene. Your commitment to providing support in times of crisis has made a significant impact on our lives."

About your donation to Australian Red Cross

Yes, donations over $2 are tax deductible in Australia. You will receive a personalised receipt in your name.

Your donation will help Australian Red Cross support the most vulnerable people in our local communities in Australia and across the Asia Pacific. Your gift will go to help wherever the needs are greatest. That could be: 

  • companionship for older people who are isolated and alone 
  • emotional and practical support to someone affected by a disaster 
  • emergency financial aid for a family who fled conflict overseas and is starting over 
  • and so much more.

Every year, in Australia, we help someone every 90 seconds. Here are some of the great things supporters like you made possible last financial year: 

  • support for more than 324,000 people during and after disasters in Australia
  •  regular phone calls or visits to more than 3,500 older isolated people 
  • much-needed support for more than 19,700 people from 125 countries who had been made vulnerable by migration and are now living in Australia
  • 66 Australian international aid workers were deployed to help in 33 countries.

If you donate to an organisation classified as a 'deductible gift recipient' (like Australian Red Cross), you can claim a tax deduction on your tax return for that year for your donation. Donating to a deductible gift recipient will likely reduce your overall taxable income, which in turn may reduce the amount of tax you are required to pay. 

You must donate at least $2 and keep proof, such as a receipt or bank statement. When you donate to Australian Red Cross, we'll send you a tax receipt. The more you donate, the more you may claim back. Find out more »

Every day, people like you are helping to make a real difference in the lives of those who are vulnerable through our regular giving program.

Our regular givers support our work by automatically donating every four weeks, either by credit card or direct debit. Their ongoing support means we can be there for people facing crisis in Australia and beyond for years to come.

We would love to help you answer any questions. Please call 1800 733 276 or email contactus@redcross.org.au. For security reasons, don't include your credit card details in your email.
