Red Cross supporters

The work Red Cross does in helping thousands of vulnerable people in Australia and further afield would not be possible without the generosity of Red Cross financial supporters and Ambassadors: thank you.

Regular givers

Nearly 40% of fundraising income comes from regular givers, who commit to a regular monthly donation to Red Cross.


Around $1 in every $5 of the fundraising income Red Cross receives comes from bequests, which are gifts made in Wills that only come into effect after a person’s lifetime.


Individual donors are everyday Australians who generously give gifts to support Red Cross work across Australia and further afield.


Ambassadors actively champion the work of Australian Red Cross and its services. Rather than being relationship-based on name association, they are part of an active partnership to grow awareness of the work of Red Cross and the need for financial support.
